SkyTEM has just completed an airborne geophysical survey in Bhutan as a sub-contractor to the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute NGI as part of a feasibility study. The client is the Department of Geology and Mines, and the purpose of the survey was to map a proposed tunnel route from Thimphu to Wangdue Phodrang using NGI’s unique competence in tunnel construction and SkyTEM leading technology.

The helicopter with suspended electromagnetic frame has aroused much interest, also in media in Bhutan. Read the articles below for further information:
