Brief: To assist in a CPTu testing program that was being conducted in Vietnam; overcome language barriers and work with CPT equipment produced by a different manufacturer.
Service: Equipment was carried around on-site by nine workers to each location where sand bags were filled and used as ballast for the rig. Training was given in proper testing techniques e.g. de-airing of filters and cone, Callibration of cones, dissipation testing etc, modifications to existing thrust system equipment and collaboration with manufacture on software and hardware questions.
Outcome: Years later the local staff still contact "Mr Yvo" when they have questions. Maunsell were very happy with the results.
