Cable and Pipe location

Prior to any works occurring it is critical to know what may be hidden under the ground. Firstly, there are safety concerns, but performing a thorough discovery through Solo IS advanced locating services, will also determine the optimal technology and operator to use for your specific project. This service allows us to efficiently deploy the right ground excavation service without harming hidden infrastructure. Solo IS operators provide underground cable and pipe location services across Australia, using ultra-modern electronic cable and pipe location technology including GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar). The discovered data is provided to our customers so they can also store it for knowledge management, future planning, project prep, and infrastructure improvements. Visibility of pre-existing underground infrastructure is also highly beneficial to our hydro excavation services. There is a range of water jetting nozzle options available, intended for high pressure jetting depending on the type of vacuum excavation or hydro excavation being conducted.  Visibility of cables and pipes and other underground utilities allows for extremely accurate preservation of infrastructure through highly advanced, pin-point excavation processes, deployed by Solo IS experience operators..
