GPRS Provides Peace of Mind for Crews on Wind Farm

GPRS was recently contacted by a large energy corporation to locate underground utilities at one of their new wind projects in Oklahoma.  The work consisted of using radio detection and ground penetrating radar to locate and mark out utilities that were along the collection lines, transmission lines, and turbine sites on the wind farm.  Andy Dermer – GPRS Oklahoma – performed the work by scanning the designated areas and marking the locations of utilities directly on the ground with marking paint, pin flags, and wooden stakes.  These findings were also recorded to be used in a Google Earth file for future reference.  With renewable energy on the rise, Ground Penetrating Radar can be an invaluable tool to help keep the site safe.  Due to the instantaneous results GPRS can provide, the information is immediately available to prevent accidents or injury on the job site.

“GPRS has done another outstanding job providing subsurface engineering work across Northern Oklahoma locating several pipelines that had been otherwise forgotten about over the years, and providing the crews a peace of mind that they can dig safely. The GPRS team has shown dedication to their craft, an impressive work ethic while operating in harsh conditions and most importantly displaying exceptional communications skills that are vital to building a successful windfarm.”
