In the Summer of 2021, TDI-Brooks took delivery of a Neptune 5000 (N5K) CPT System from Datem. The image shows the N5K deployment on TDI-Brooks’ multi-use oceanographic research vessel, R/V BROOKS McCALL. TDI-Brooks conducted two projects with this tool on the East Coast of the US in 2021. The first program was conducted in October for and Offshore Wind Farm project. It involved the acquisition of approximately ninety (90) PCPTs. The N5K CPT soundings for this project were acquired with a 5 cm2 cone and achieved up to 5-m penetration in these mostly sand/ gravel seafloors. The second program was conducted in November for a pipeline design installation. For this program over sixty (60) N5K CPT soundings were acquired using both 5 and 10 cm2 cones.
