Palsatech Oy has expanded the supply of services and been involved in many projects in construction industry. The service center based in Kemi offers modern facilities to execute geotechnical and geological reporting related to engineering geology.
Project Geologist Jari Mannila (M.Sc.) is responsible for the engineering geological know-how. He has 10 years of experience in mine development, mineral exploration and engineering geological projects.
He is familiar with engineering geological logging and using the Q-system. Most of the time serving the construction industry he has spent in Länsimetro site (employed by Palsatech Oy and previously by Suomen Malmi). Other tasks in the Helsinki region have been the engineering geological reporting for Pisararata, Kalasatama parking hall and Håga-tunnel in Espoo.
“I’ve also been working in other projects like the Central water plant in Tampere, Fennovoima nuclear, Borealis Polymers Oy in Kilpilahti and the the Saimaa drill holes for Posiva (1700m)”, says Jari Mannila.
The company offers a wide range of services which is also good for employees. “A versatile geologist can work both in mining and construction industries. It is easier to find projects for such geologists”, says company’s Chief Geologist Hannu Ahola.
Since 2016, Palsatech Ltd. has been designing and implementing a new generation of drill core logging table modules. The design of the tables is the company's own production, manufacturing is partly implemented under subcontracting.
"I have worked in the core logging processing almost 20 years, and several times I've been thinking about what partitions should be developed that it would serve to the users in the best possible way. Safety and health runs the idea of the center, because work ergonomics is major risk of sample process. In addition, we wanted notice flexible use of workspace , saving space and making work more efficient "says Mika Alasuutari, Managing Director of the company.
The company has implemented several projects and is currently ongoing large units for LKAB's mines in Malmberg and Kiruna in Sweden.

Palsatech and TerraCore have joined forces in order to offer the possibility to study core samples with modern hyperspectral imaging techniques.
‘We discussed with TerraCore and together decided to co-operate as this is a clear win-win situation for all. Meaning the two companies and all our clients. We already have a significant amount of drillcore in our storage facilities, which then can be easily transferred to our research facility to perform the imaging. First projects have already been done and hopefully there is a lot more to come. The technique has been known for a while and finally we have it available in Kemi. We think this will be a part of standard drill core logging procedure in the future’, says Hannu Ahola, Chief Geologist of Palsatech.
