Brownfield Hydrographic Survey

9th December, 2010

LandScope Engineering have recently completed a multi-sensor hydrographic survey of a former oil refinery reservior in Llandarcy, South Wales. In addition to detailed bathymetry – sub-bottom profile data was also acquired with both acoustic and ground penetrating radar (GPR) techniques. The survey was conducted from LandScope’s in-house RIB installed with RTK GNSS positioning and Trimble Hydro Pro Integrated Navigation.

Coed Darcy is a major brownfield regeneration site in South Wales.  Occupying the site of the former BP Llandarcy Oil Refinery, which was decommissioned in the 1990’s, Coed Darcy will contain 4,000 houses in a sustainable mixed-used community.
