Contaminant Sampling at Hinkley Point

  01/12/2011
Supporting the proposed EDF nuclear power development at Hinkley Point, the UK survey company Coastline was tasked with extracting vibrocore samples adjacent to Combwich Wharf, near Hinkley Point, in support of a licence application for the upgrade and enlargement programme that would allow access for the vessels required to bring heavy machinery and construction plant to the project. Using the Wharf will enable very large components to be brought on site which are too large to use road transport networks.
 

 

Hickley Point

The team had to overcome many difficulties on the intertidal location, including tidal ranges amongst the largest in the world and unpredictable difficulties of the unexpected ground conditions. Historical information on the site proved incorrect at times, with the vibrocorer penetrating unrecorded protective concrete mats. Coastline provided core logging and reporting procedures through its new laboratories in Lowestoft.

 

Project management for the work was provided by CEFAS, a UK government agency of Defra, which is EDF Energy's programme manager for marine environment studies at Hinkley Point.

How to Use QPS' Qimera to Validate Processed Point Files

QPS Qimera processing software has been released earlier this year. To demonstrate the capabilities, this video shows how to load processed point files into a Qimera Project. It explains what processed point files are; how to specify the coordinate system of the project and the source files; how to create a Dynamic Surface from processed point files and how to change the dynamic surface and adjust the colour map to aid data editing and validation.
