Westbay Permafrost Applications

Westbay’s unique design is ideal for Permafrost applications.

As activities such as mine development and oil and gas extraction increase in arctic environments, there is a corresponding demand for characterizing groundwater conditions beneath permafrost. The unique design of the Westbay System allows it to be installed and operated reliably in permafrost settings, gaining repeatable access to mobile groundwater beneath 500 m or more of permafrost.

Permafrost Applications
  • Groundwater sampling in freezing environment
  • Long term access to water level measurement
  • Repeated access for hydraulic testing
  • Performance monitoring during all aspects of mine development, operation, closure and post-closure phases
