Recently the 200 kN Crawler-Based CPT Rig was inspected by Fugro at our facility in the Netherlands and is now on it way, by ship, to its destination.

We would like to thank Sheldon Collins and the Fugro team in the US for the order and their faith in our team and product, we wish them many safe working hours with the equipment.

Soon the rig will be joined by one of our Gouda team members to provide onsite user and maintenance training to the team of operators.
