EnerTek has successfully completed phase two of a sedimentation study in a number of large reservoirs for one of the world’s largest mining companies. The study, designed by EnerTek, consists of measuring sediment and water volume, analyzing physicochemical parameters and modeling future sedimentation based on current and historic data.

The study aims to predict the useable life of the reservoirs, analyze options to recover lost volume and plan for the implementation of measures to mitigate excessive sedimentation in the future. The work was carried out using EnerTek’s advanced ADCP technology mounted on our new remotely operated vehicle (ROV).
