Locating Existing Cables & Pipes

We can find all buried cables and pipes without digging potholes everywhere with a range of sophisticated detection devices:

MALA Geoscience - Easy Locator Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

GPR is the only technology available that does not require a physical connection to the utility, nor does it rely on radiating electromagnetic (EM) fields that may or may not be present or detectable.

The Easy Locator, Ground Penetrating Radar system allows our engineers to locate, depth and trace the route of all non-metallic utilities such as plastic pipes, fibre optic cables, clay pipes, ducts etc.

Penetrating the ground to a depth of up to 3.0 metres, and when used in conjunction with our other equipment, allows our engineers to build the overall picture of what utilities lie buried.

CAT 4 & GENNY – (Power, Data & Pipe Locator)

The CAT4 (Cable Avoidance Tool) is an advanced cable avoidance tool delivering world class performance from a powerful digital processing platform.

It can detect signals naturally radiating from metallic services or the Genny4 box can be used to apply a distinctive signal that the CAT4 receiver can detect. The Radiodetection CAT4 and Genny4 has become the industry standard pipe and cable avoidance tool.

The CAT4 key features are:

Precision locate
Improved pinpointing of buried services and exceptionally fast sound and meter response.

Optimised locate
Operates effectively in congested sites, and sites with overhead cables.

Avoidance Scan
Search in Power, Radio and Genny modes simultaneously for improved safety and faster surveys.

Strike Alert
Alerts the user to shallow power cables by flashing an alert icon.


Rigid CS1000 Portable Inspection & Location System

Our Rigid CS1000 camera has a built in sonde and locator to identify the exact position of the problem.




DitchWitch 970T Transmitter Locating Equipment

We use the same guidance technology to locate services as we use to guide our directional drills. The DitchWitch 970T can locate any underground metal pipe work or cabling and give accurate depth and direction readings. We can also track all sewer, stormwater or underground ducts using the same technology.
