GDS Re-visit Advanced Offshore Laboratory in Taiwan

Piotr Dera, Geotechnical Systems Team Lead at GDS Instruments, recently visited Sinotech’s offshore soil mechanics laboratory in Taiwan.

Sinotech & PDE Offshore Corporation launched the first dedicated offshore geotechnical laboratory in Taiwan in 2019 due to increasing investment in renewable energy projects and increased demand for advanced testing. The laboratory hosts a multitude of GDS apparatus, including Resonant Column, Dynamic, Static, Shear and Consolidation systems. It was great to return to the laboratory, where Piotr carried out equipment checks and system adjustments to assist with their accreditation, calibration and standard compliance. 

We are already excited to have seen this laboratory develop over the last few years, and we can’t wait to see what more their research discovers in the future. You can read more about the laboratory launch and offshore practices in Taiwan by clicking on the case study link.
