First Detector DUO into South Africa

IMG_0407

Drilline Products are proud to announce that during November this year they have sold the first Detector DUO GPR system into South Africa.

 

Grounded Pty, a Horizontal Directional Drilling contractor, based in Cape Town needed to invest in GPR technology to avoid hitting utilities in the Eastern Cape city and the surrounding areas whilst they were carrying out their HDD projects, which mainly involve installation of expensive communications cables.

 

As Drilline was an existing supplier of drilling parts and tooling the management at Grounded Pty made some enquiries about GPR technology.  A few phone calls later and we were on our way to Cape Town to deliver the system and do some in depth training to the customers drilling crews.

 

Drilline hope that this will be the first of many GPR systems into South Africa for use within utility detection.

Drilline Products delivered their hundredth ground penetrating radar (GPR) this month into the UK market.  Back in February 2007, Milton Keynes Surveys were the first customer worldwide to take delivery of the IDS Detector DUO GPR system, so it seemed fitting for the survey company to be the recipient of the system that brings up Drilline’s centenary sale.

 

Milton Keynes Surveys are now the biggest user of the Detector DUO system within the UK, David Rust their Managing Director said “the DUO has helped us grow our business within the utility sector from scratch to where we are now”, they currently have 5 systems.

 

The IDS Detector DUO is specifically designed for on-site utility detection.  It has the facility of a dual frequency antenna, this enables you to detect both shallow and deep targets simultaneously which increases the detection performance, being a digitized system you can save the data for later viewing or post-processing through dedicated software.
