Power Generation

Last year,  nearly  63% of U.S. utility-scale electricity generation was produced from fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and petroleum), about 20% was from nuclear energy, and about 17% was from renewable energy sources. These industrial facilities have operators who are responsible for the repairs and updates on the mechanical and electrical equipment. Our extensive training program continues to  produce  experienced  project managers, providing industry  leading results when locating private utilities, scanning concrete and video pipe inspection (CCTV). 

GPRS has successfully completed as-built utility update projects at many power generation  facilities across the United States.  With our comprehensive range of reporting options, from marks on the ground, to a basic field sketch, or a detailed CAD report or satellite image overlay,  our energy clients  have the peace of mind of knowing that they have the most reliable scanning and reporting  technology on their job site. 

Much of our success in the power generation space is a result of our world-class training program. Our project managers are taken through an extensive process in which they learn about the SIM Specification. SIM contains three primary elements, the human asset, technology asset and methods applied in the field. The best site results are accomplished when the experienced, trained field technician can utilize multiple technologies in a comparative analysis of results from each utility locating technology. Thus, a highly skilled technician can locate the same utility using multiple technologies resulting in confirmation of findings and results.


Power plants typically have a complex underground maze of utilities, pipes, and pipelines. GPRS is able to determine the location of these utilities prior to construction or renovations and provide a detailed map. In addition to damage prevention, GPRS is able to update existing utility as-built drawings. 


The dangers of excavation within substations, along transmission lines, and for transmission-connected facilities are many. GPRS underground utility locating services are able to map the location of underground utilities on public or private property. Our SIM process leads the industry in damage prevention.


Substations present unique challenges when attempting to locate utilities and underground grids. The underground facilities that are present in these scenarios require an expert-level underground utility locate and map. GPRS is able to provide the info needed to proceed with safe excavation and planning from substation to delivery.


GPRS exceeds industry performance when it comes to the accuracy of underground utility locating. Our team can continue the support of your project by crafting a one-call program for when the project transitions to the O&M phase. Whether supporting locating tickets for assets on public or private property, GPRS is a clear choice for damage prevention.

Rather than send a rigid rate sheet to prospective clients, GPRS can create a customized service plan. We take into account our industry experience, national footprint, and operational/scheduling capacity to craft a customized plan just for you.
Schedule Icon


With one single point of contact for you company, GPRS can schedule utility locating, video pipe inspection, and concrete scanning projects for your site with one simple phone call. Gone is the need to call multiple service providers across a region or nationally. GPRS has Project Managers in every major market in the US and our single point of contact will simplify your scheduling process.


GPRS understands that clear, understandable, and consistent pricing is a big deal. Our nationwide footprint allows us to streamline our costs on a nationwide basis, we are sure to craft a cost structure that makes sense for the scope of work. Rather than send a blanket rate sheet, we consultaively compose pricing plans for each project.

Every campus, site and facility have different challenges. Since our inception, GPRS has completed hundreds of thousands of projects and relies on that experience when crafting a site-specific plan for safety, scanning and reporting. With the SIM Specification as our guide, we will craft an individualized approach to each and every project. From facility mapping, locating prior to excavation, to performing one-call locating - GPRS will perform the right service for your scope of work.

Public Property

Public Property

Damage prevention is critical when excavating in a public right-of-way. Using the 811, call before you dig system, is an essential step to take when trying to avoid underground utility strikes. It's the law! GPRS is able to contract and perform one-call type utility locating for your underground assets.
Public Property

Private Property

A utility locate on private property is not complete until a private utility locator like GPRS has been called to comprehensively locate the entire campus. GPRS can create a one-call type program for your facility or campus in the case that you have utilities that lie within public property.


Our highly trained Project Managers have extensive experience locating utilities at compressor stations, pump/lift stations, terminal facilities, tank farms, pipeline mapping, pipe installation (all midstream activities) as well as oil well drilling, refineries, petrochemical plants, and more. Our schedule is at your disposal, there is familiarity with site intricacies, and we can manage as-built drawings for the entire site.
As-Built Drawings

As-Built Drawings

As-built utility drawings don't always show the current underground conditions of a site. Drawings that are produced in the design-phase of a project don't always reflect the exact location of underground utilities. Over time, due to renovations, repairs, and additions, as-built drawings become out of date. GPRS PMs are able to update as-built drawings so that they reflect the actual vertical and horizontal position of underground facilities.
