Dick P.B. Van der Roest

 Scanlink has been a developer of geophysical surveying technology since 1994. Based on their developments they realized that they were in a good position also to provide services based on this know-how. In 1999 Scanlink was involved in a large study for the Dutch Local Waterboards Research Institute to test geophysical methods on their merits to provide adequate data on waterways. Recently another EU large research project was completed by Scanlink on the detection of hydrocarbon contamination in the soil. Though having also a good track record in this field, Scanlink decided to focus on water based measurements as there is still a large area to be covered and the market potential for innovative measuring techniques is substantial in this field. Therefor Scanlink’s addition to the project will be focussed on getting technology to work in practical circumstances.
