About

Alpha Geoscience has one of the largest pools of geophysical instruments in Australia, available on short or long term rental.  If we do not have it listed, we have access to most instruments you might require.

Training

Training is available for your operators on data collection, giving full instruction on the use of the instrument, trouble-shooting the unit and processing of the results.  This can be undertaken in Alpha’s office in Sydney or at your office or field operations.

Insurance of Rental Equipment

Alpha is pleased to provide insurances to cover rental equipment for accidental loss or damage (this does not include probes when down a drillhole or the gravimeter.  This alleviates the need for customers to provide their own insurance on the equipment, which can often be difficult to obtain on a one-off basis.

 

Services

Alpha Geoscience also offers the services of undertaking the survey for you, using the equipment. Alpha Geoscience can also provide you with a data processing service and supply colour images of the data and, if so required, an interpretation of the data.
