ground penetrating radar (GPR)
Speight Drilling use 2 types of high performance locating equipment to ensure all utilities are identified prior to drilling; the Opera Duo Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Electro Magnetic Induction (EMI).
The IDS Opera Duo is a Ground Penetrating Radar that we use to find and map a variety of utilities. The Opera Duo simultaneously displays cables and both metallic and non metallic pipes together in real time and also features a dual frequency antenna to detect both deep and shallow targets.
The EMI is a high-precision cable locator containing a unique arrangement of 5 custom-manufactured ground antennas which allows you to choose the best method to locate specific pipes and cables. Speight Drilling have invested in the accredited training required to ensure the right actions are carried out and have vast, accurate experience on the field.
Speight Drilling have trained professionals who can ensure service locating is done thoroughly and with minimal risk. We invest in good training for our team to ensure safety comes first. We provide this alongside our specialist drilling services because it makes sense. It saves the client wait time, not requiring another contractor to arrive on site and we like to take pro-active responsibility for ensuring only the safest measures and highest quality equipment is used prior to drilling sites.
We work with our clients to achieve the results they require in the safest way possible. Sign offs and mapping prior to drilling among services are a part of our routine pre-check and the client/consultant is always kept informed. We listen to the needs of our clients, remain cautious and employ best service locating practices. Trust our experienced team of qualified professionals.
