The design of hydropower projects requires a multitude of investigations covering many aspects. The studies associated with the sections containing rapids are often the most difficult, due to the safely issues that will eventually arise. To carry out bathymetric surveys in areas where traditional marine acoustic surveys are not possible, heliborne georadar is often the only possible solution .
GPR has a unique experience in heliborne-georadar and bathymetry field.
We were pioneers of this technique as applied to civil engineering applications, especially for the construction of dams and dikes in James Bay (northern Quebec) in the beginning of the 1990's.
