Detection of underground infrastructure in Bad Bevensen

Detection of the underground infrastructure before designing the route of horizontal drill is a service that our detection team performs most frequently. In this case, in cooperation with one of the leading companies in the telecommunication and energy industry, we conducted research in  Bad Bevensen, Germany. The aim of the project was to create a single, multi-disciplinary digital map of an underground utilities network based on a comprehensive soil survey for selected sections of the planned drilling. Selected fragments of the terrain where those in which the probability of a collision and damage to the infrastructure was the highest, and their total length was about 1 km. GPR, along with underground detection techniques, was used to determine the course and the depth of the existing network

Project aims
  • The integration of existing industry documentation,
  •  Non-invasive methods for  mapping the underground utilities network,
  •  A GPR survey for the detection of other underground obstacles,
  • Preparation of a multi-disciplinary underground infrastructure map.
02.
Challenges
  • The lack of digital data related to arms of the land,
  • Poor quality and outdated documentation,
  • Complicated characteristics of the area studied.
03.
Solutions
  • Digitisation of the analogue materials,
  • Using a variety of detection techniques  (electromagnetic locators, polls, inductive measuring location and GPR) for a comprehensive land examination,
  • Integration of the results  in a CAD environment.
