Site Assessments


SST conducts the entire spectrum of site assessment activities, from desktop studies through geophysical and geotechnical surveys, Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), cable route surveys and development of cable route position lists. We have done site assessments for shore landings and cable projects worldwide, using state-of-the-art survey and data processing methodologies.

Many of SST’s projects include HDD shore landings. SST uses a variety of site assessment methodologies to plan the HDD routes and to predict the geology for the drilling operations.

This chart shows the results of a survey conducted by SST in the form of a slope chart for replacement of the shore landings for the Greenland Connect cable landing at Nuuk, Greenland.

SST installed three HDD shore landings on Wake Island for a nuclear test monitoring system
