Private Utility Locating at Cell Tower Upgrade
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Illinois was called out for utility locating at an existing cell tower compound, by a contractor who is updating a cell tower site. The contractor hoped to find valuable information about utilities in the area for future modifications and add-ons in the site.
GPRS scanning assists contractors by giving them a real time view of the utility layout, helping them to know where they can place certain boring or anchoring locations and it can help in reducing the likelihood of strikes during trenching or boring. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems uses the RD-8000 Locator to locate live power, communication and other utilities that may have a power signal on them. Once the utilities in the path were identified they were marked directly on the surface so the customer will know where the utilities are. We can also locate utilities in the ground/under the surface via induction or conduction with an exposed or known surface utility line.
Once all live power, communication and other utilities that might give off a power signal are located and marked out, GPRS uses the latest GSSI Sir-3000 technology to help in double checking and locating other critical utilities under the surface. The radar emits radiation less than 1% of that found to be emitted by standard cell phones. This means practically no hazardous radiation to operators or persons around the work zone. Our system assists in the confirmation process of locating anomalies. Once the utilities in the path were identified they were marked directly on the surface so the customer will know where the utilities are.
GPRS specializes in multi-technology scans. In order to do so, we employ highly qualified, trained and hardworking individuals. We guarantee the best service from our managers, with quick response times, quality information and data, great pricing, and enthusiasm. Each job comes with a job report of the findings from the site.
