Finding and identifying underground assets has long been a challenge for utilities and municipalities. Mistakes and accidental hits are both costly and dangerous. Now thanks to infrastructure-marking experts Berntsen International, there is an easier way to mark utilities and manage them using the latest technologies available to the industry.
Utility contractors know that locating an underground asset can be a time-consuming process, especially if the information they are given is inaccurate, or the asset in question has to be moved. It was with that problem in mind that we set about trying to reduce locate times for gas, water and sewer pipes underground, as well as assets on-surface and to bridge the gap between physical assets in the field and users' GIS systems.
The answer? The InfraMarker RFID System.
