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 plant 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 danger of excavation within substations, a long transmission lines, and for transmission-connected facilities are many. GPRS underground utility locating services are able to map the location of underground utilities and public or private property. Our SIM process leads the industry and damage prevention.
Substations percent 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. weather supporting locating tickets for assets on public or private property, GPRS is a clear choice for damage prevention.
