“We have a long-standing cooperation with UWITEC regarding sediment sampling. Whether small or large (Danube) rivers, UWITEC always offers innovative solutions. Due to their professional competence and experience as well as the collegial cooperation, we always had a perfect partner at hand with UWITEC.”

“I have been using the 60 mm piston coring system and the 90 mm Hybrid system during expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic for about 10 years. In the extreme conditions there, the technology must be robust and function reliably, whether in summer on open water or in winter on metre-thick ice. I can clearly recommend UWITEC.”
Dr. Boris Biskaborn
“A reliable partner for several years. We work with Uwitec when we want to be sure that a well (even in difficult conditions) will be a success.”
