Vibracoring Vessels

AVS 5

American Vibracore Services (AVS) is a leader in the offshore/onshore geotechnical drilling, vibracoring and marine support services industry since 2002. A key competitive advantage lies in the fact that we own, operate and maintain all of our own vibracoring equipment and vessel platforms.

In addition to Geotechnical Field Services, the M/V Thunderforce and crew can provide Marine Support Services. AVS has experience using the M/V Thunderforce as a dive platform, transporter and deployment of submersibles and is able to tow a variety of data gathering arrays. We have worked with the Department of Defense, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, as well as universities and private companies for geotechnical, oceanographic, scientific studies and much more.
