7822DT Early Responder for Geotechnical and Environmental Sampling
A Geoprobe® 7822DT, owned by Strata Drilling Group in Richmond Hill, Ontario (Canada), was early on scene for a train derailment on March 7, 2015, north of Gogama in northern Ontario. The 94-car CN locomotive carrying crude oil crossed a bridge when 38 cars derailed with five cars plunging into the river. Mike Brown, Operations Manager for Strata Drilling, received a call early that morning, requesting that a rig be sent to the site. Scott Reid, Driller for Strata Drilling, gathered supplies and left with their 7822DT to collect environmental and geotechnical data. DPT work was completed around the site providing geotechnical data for the building of a diversion track as well as environmental sampling down to bedrock (25 ft.) to find the extent of impact.
