Based in Cape Town (South Africa), Unique Hydra is a provider of subsea rental equipment in Africa and a manufacturer of world class dive solutions. The product and service range includes design and manufacture of air, mixed gas and saturation diving equipment, marine winches, certified man-rider winches and specialized subsea rigging equipment among many others.

In Situ Site Investigation is a geotechnical and geo-environmental site investigation company which specializes in the use of Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) techniques and other related pushing technologies.

CPT is a commonly used In Situ testing method which is used to determine the geotechnical engineering properties of soils and assessing subsurface stratigraphy. Increased accuracy, speed of deployment, more continuous soil profile and reduced cost over other soil testing methods make CPT testing an attractive option while undertaking geotechnical investigations.

CPT equipments available will include marine systems, both near shore (<40m) and offshore (>40m) as well as a fully fitted out land based CPT truck.
