Soil sampling in dams
40 meter deep soil samples from dams in Swedish Lapland
Due to the many lakes in Sweden there are also many dams. Sometimes these dams are so old that no information is available about the gournd structure of the dam. Soil samples are required to determine the composition of the dam. On behalf of SonicSampDrill, H5S has carried out several dual wall drillings on various dams in the area around Seitevare in Sweden.
Given the desire to drill into the dam at an angle of 45 degrees and the available space on top of the dam, the HFS-Sonic Drill Rig came into its own in this project. To the customer’s satisfaction, high-quality soil samples were removed from the ground at a depth of 40 meters.
