Project Description

Ruwais Refinery Expansion project involves the reclamation of a 3 km x 3 km area, dredging of a shipping channel, associated quality control testing and settlement monitoring.

Datgel developed the construction phase Geotechnical Data Management System, including a calculations and reporting system for:

  • Materials lab - classification, compaction control, chemical and shear tests
  • In situ testing - CPTs, Boreholes, CBR, Density
  • Monitoring - Piezometer, Magnetic Extensometer, Rod Settlement Gauge

Phil Wade attended site to install and test the system, and train users.  User documentation was provided, and Datgel will support the system through the 2 year project.

For optimum performance and ease of maintenance the entire system is installed on a Terminal Server, and both contractor and client users access the system via TS. The Secure Export Tool automatically makes newly approved data available to the client each night.
