Angel Descent

The need for accurate and undisturbed core samples has led to the development of this new coring method with controlled penetration speed, in order to obtain sediment samples with more accurate outcomes. Based on the water depth, this methodology, called "Angel Descent",

Light Box Corer

This is an instrument intended for the recovery of superficial samples of the seabed which are then held in a metal box. The sample collected is characterized by a low rate of disturbance to the sedimentary structure and includes the bottom

slide mg


Our company was born from the idea of creating the technology necessary for taking undisturbed samples from the seafloor, thus obtaining a sample which can be completely analysed in any geological, geotechnical, environmental or engineering study.

Our service is available both for Clients and Contractors: with our skilled staff and equipment the goal of obtaining Quality Coring is always achieved.
