Wind Power and Solar Power

ORIZON provides specialized Geophysical Services to the Wind Power and Solar Power Industry in India. ORIZON have developed customized geophysical techniques which are ideally suited to all the needs of most Wind Power and Solar Power project sites. These Geophysical Techniques have the capability of providing adequate information which are very helpful for Wind Power and Solar Power planning engineers for optimizing the location of turbines and their foundation design. Using Geophysical Techniques information about the strength of sub-surface material, elastic parameters, electric properties of sub-surface soil for earthing designs can be easily obtained.

ORIZON uses a combination of following geophysical techniques to delineate and map voids, cavities, fault / fracture zones, weak zones, buried structures, and soil stratification:

  • Electrical Resistivity Imaging / Tomography
  • Seismic Refraction
  • Borehole Seismic
  • Ground Penetrating Radar
  • Electro-Magnetic Methods
  • Microgravity
