Several engineering geologists, geophysicists and geotechnical engineers working for Fugro will show and tell you all about what they are currently working on. This could be data acquisition, analysis, and engineering on projects such as the Dutch Offshore Wind Farm IJmuiden Ver and the Antwerpen Oosterweel Rail Link, but also developing new innovative tools and equipment. You will be offered an unique opportunity to see and experience first hand what they do at Fugro.

In this Ingeokring theme year “Salt of the Earth”, we will visit the salt mines in central Germany. The mines are now in use as storage location of nuclear waste. Along the way we will also visit a Mock-up mine in the Harz area and some other interesting geological sites.
Saturday 7 October 2023:
Travel to the Quedlinburg-area (ca. 500km / 6 hrs)
Own transport (we will try to combine if desired)
Possibility for some interesting stop along the way (tbd)
The Morsleben salt mine is a storage of low to medium radioactive waste. This mine is currently being prepared for final storage, and it is a stable mine in the current state. There is a nearby storage facility, the Asse II mine, which was also filled with nuclear waste in the 60’s to 90’s of the previous century. It is currently under investigation as it was found not stable and retrieval of the waste is being prepared. Hans Roest will give a well-informed presentation on the problems encountered at the Asse II mine on the evening before our visit to the Morsleben mine.
There is a maximum of 14 people that can go underground. We intend to give priority to Ingeokring members for the slots of the underground visit. For other (co)-visitors or for those who prefer to stay above ground, there is the possibility to do a 3D Virtual tour of the mine at the same time.
All costs for travel and lodging (room + food) will be for the individual participants. A preliminary estimate is 300 Euros pp for a single room incl. breakfast/diner, and 230 Euros pp for a double room incl. breakfast/diner. Travel costs are additional.
The Ingeokring Symposium 2021 has a very interesting program on the occasion of celebrating the retirement of Wim Verwaal after 40 years of excellent contribution to the education of Engineering Geology in the Netherlands and beyond.
The symposium will be followed by a food and drinks event from 16:45. Please see below the programme of the day
*) To facilitate our logistic, we would like that that you register to the event by sending an e-mail to Ingeokring secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating your choice of the following:
