Digging holes in the ground is a fundamental part of construction and of the installation and maintenance of buried utilities. Every time ground is broken, there is a risk of damaging buried cables and pipes.
One of the biggest challenges in the water industry today is leakage, because of the costs involved and damage to the environment. There are continuous time and cost pressures on water companies to reduce water loss.
Professional surveyors often work in the most diverse and difficult to access locations to create maps and establish boundaries for ownership, locations, construction or the surface location of subsurface features.
Technicians locating cables when operating in and around high voltage environments face huge challenges. Infrastructure such as substations and High Voltage cables can create huge amounts of interference.
Oil & Gas
Buried pipelines are the backbone of transportation and distribution networks for energy products such as crude oil and natural gas.
Rising urbanisation rates and increasing requirements for telecom connectivity across the world mean that there will be more and more cables and ducts in the ground and therefore more frequent excavation.
For both health and economic reasons, access to clean water and sanitation infrastructure is essential for our planet’s growing population.
Leading-edge pipeline inspection and location equipment help municipalities, utilities and their engineering teams and contractors to regularly assess the condition of sewer pipeline systems.
