Since 1975 C-CORE has provided research-based advisory services and technology solutions to help clients mitigate operational risk in ice/iceberg-prone waters world-wide. With a special focus on understanding and managing ice risk, protecting vessels and infrastructure, and advancing design for frontier regions, C‐CORE leads the world in ice and ocean engineering.
We add value to design and operations in ice by combining our ice engineering expertise with our sea ice and iceberg remote sensing services, and our ice–structure and ice–soil geotechnical analyses.
For nearly 50 years, C-CORE has supported offshore energy developments via our ocean engineering expertise. Our extensive work in this area positions us to offer design-basis support and systems evaluation for offshore wind and renewable developments, particularly those in remote or harsh climates. We help clients understand design for operations in frontier regions, and the associated risks, through developing novel designs and mitigating operational risk.
C-CORE provides research-based advice and innovative solutions for the geotechnical aspects of infrastructure projects, both onshore and offshore. Market sectors served include oil & gas; pipeline; mining; Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management (EPCM) Contractors; and government.
C-CORE’s geotechnical expertise, founded in physical and numerical modeling, includes pipeline testing, ice–seabed interaction, soil-structure interaction, and reduced-scale physical modeling using our geotechnical centrifuge facility.
