First Detector DUO into South Africa
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.
