GeoVerra’s team members support the entire lifecycle of sustainable energy projects; this includes field and office support for upfront feasibility and project planning, through all phases of construction and execution, on to clean up and final commissioning.
Our experience at industrial facilities and on mainstream pipelines and transmission lines lends itself to the transportation of sustainable energy products, like carbon dioxide and hydrogen.
