Quickie: Bentley expands underground modeling with acquisition of Aarhus

Jul 7, 2021 | Hot Topics

I’m watching the UEFA Cup, so this will be brief:

Bentley just announced that the Seequent business unit Bentley just acquired is, in turn, acquiring the Danish company, Aarhus GeoSoftware. Aarhus GeoSoftware makes AGS Workbench, SPIA, Res2DInv, and Res3DInv for the processing and visualization of “geophysical data from ground-based and airborne electromagnetic (EM), electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) remote sensing, and other sources”. Users create 2D and 3D images of the subsurface based on electrical resistivity. These outputs are used to identify and differentiate subsurface materials — and can then be modeled using Seequent’s Leapfrog to understand what’s there and design underground and surface structures accordingly.

Bentley says Aarhus will extend “Seequent’s solutions for operational groundwater management, and for sustainability projects involving exploration, contaminants, and infrastructure resilience.”

Financial details were not disclosed.
