CPT Rigs

CPT Rigs

Projects often require CPTs in a variety of locations with varied terrain, including motorways, rugged mountainous terrain, offshore and rail work where access may be restricted.

In Situ Site Investigation is able to provide a wide range of CPT rigs to meet our clients’ requirements and specifications. In addition to our rigs, we also have our own transport for moving our rigs around the country. This enables us to have full control over our moves and better serve our clients.
