For water depths between 30 and 300 m the near-shore ROSON is a suitable solution. This ROSON is available with 50 kN, 100 kN or 200 kN pushing force. To avoid the investment in a self-tensioning winch, data communication runs over a free hanging cable to the Icontrol data logger.
At water depths up to 30 m a jack-up barge or pontoon is often used. As long as the influence of currents and the tide is small, an onshore application with a HYSON top pusher on the operators platform is suitable. Casing tubes between the platform and the river- or seabed are required to support and protect the CPT string.
