Keynetix Ltd is delighted to announce that COWI have recently become the first company to use HoleBASE for a project in mainland China, operating from their office in Zhuhai.
This is not just any project either; COWI are employing HoleBASE software to manage the geotechnical data generated by their work on the prestigious Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau fixed link which, when completed, will provide a link between Hong Kong and mainland China.

The landmark structure is considered China’s most important infrastructure project and will include the world’s longest immersed tunnel for road traffic.Staff from COWI’s offices in Denmark and San Francisco are participating in the design of the immersed tunnel, working alongside their colleagues from COWI China.
“It gives us enormous pleasure to see COWI choose to employ HoleBASE on a project of this scale and significance” commented Keynetix Managing Director, Dr Roger Chandler. “This is another great example of how HoleBASE software can be used on large construction projects and we are looking forward to supporting COWI in working on one of the largest infrastructure projects in the world.”
Offshore site investigations are currently being carried out involving COWI, in order to establish the geotechnical basis for carrying out the detailed design. Great effort is to be focused on achieving high quality testing results in accordance with international standards, and the scope of works will include among others advanced laboratory odometer and triaxial testing of soft clay samples. All field and laboratory test results will be reported in AGS 3.1 format. This project is likely to be one of the first major infrastructure construction projects in mainland China where AGS data will be produced.
Commenting on the use of HoleBASE on this project, Jimmy Gordon Hansen (Area Manager, Geotechnical Basis)of COWIsaid:
“AGS data handling is a major strength of Keynetix’s software and the production, transfer and storage of data in the AGS format will ensure that the legacy left by this project is strong and that the data generated is robust and accessible”.
Keynetix wishes COWI well with this extraordinary project and recommends that interested readers visit the following web-pages for more information on the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau fixed link and on HoleBASE:
