Gouda-Geo Organises 2017 VOTB Venue

Gouda Geo-Equipment BV

The VOTB is the Dutch association of entrepreneurs involved in (geo-)technical soil investigation. This organisation started 40 years ago and stands for the common interest of its members. A lot of geotechnical knowledge and practical experience are exchanged within the association.

Every year, the traditional VOTB office manager meeting is held at a different location. This year the meeting is scheduled for Wednesday September 27th and Gouda Geo-Equipment will host this event.

On this occasion we will present a number of innovations, including a 200 kN CPT crawler with pivoting levelling jacks, a 175 kN Crawler-Truck, a newly developed hydraulic Ackermann soil sampler device that allows for soil sampling from within a drill pipe and a lightweight 200 kN CPT pusher with integrated push-and-pull clamp. In addition, there will be lectures on the advantages of real time temperature compensation of piezocones and digital CPT data transmission.
