The team at AUS-ROV have been busy travelling to and from Gladstone to execute underwater inspections of the internal walls and base of two test pilings that have been driven into the bedrock at Curtis Island in Gladstone Harbour. The engineers and geotechs will use the footage captured to identify the means necessary to prepare the foundations prior to placement of concrete.  Visibility was a difficulty which was encountered with a sediment layer of around 6m hampering the ROV's ability to get to the bottom of the piling. After several attempts and pumping the sludge out from the bottom, AUS-ROV were able to successfully capture footage that clearly identifies the geological condition of the seabed within the piling.
