A sophisticated, electrically driven, vibrating coring system that can extract optimum samples at speed in depths of up to 1000 m or more.

The original Med C Vibrocorer- VC(VKG) 3/6/9- has been successfully operating in harsh climates and challenging deep sea conditions for many years. Satisfied clients include Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency Germany, MMT Sweden, Fugro and Geo Marine Survey System (Geo-Corer) Netherlands, Next Geosolutions Italy and Jan De Nul Belgium.

The Vibrocorer is available for full purchase including all additional equipment and consumables required. If your operation only requires the Vibrocorer for a set period of time, we can provide the equipment on a rental or lease basis regardless of your project lenght.


Vibrocorer in Action

KUM Offshore Vibrocorer Seabed Sampling

Features & Benefits


  • Smaller and lighter than others on the market
  • Great penetration power and far greater efficieny, by over coming frixtion in sediments
  • Optimal cores in fine, middle and grain sand


  • Up to 40 cores/sites extracted per day
  • Just 5 - minute penetration and extraction time (with unlimited runtime)
  • Unique decoupling design resulting in minimum vibrational deadweight
  • Can be operated on smaller vessels with winch/lift capacity just 20kN
  • A standard core barrel lenght of 6m can be adjusted all the way down to 3m
  • Split barrels are available up to 9m, with transparent liners for enlarged dimensions
