Austin Utility Locating Projects that Penhall Worked On
Penhall Technologies locates power lines after one line was hit during drilling
Penhall Technologies’ Austin Division was recently hired by a RV and Boat storage facility to locate multiple power lines. The lines provide electricity to each storage canopy and to the main entrance to the facility. The company was installing two new covered areas for more storage. The company drilling the footings told the Storage Facility that utility locating was not necessary. During drilling, the main power to the facility was hit, as well as power to one of the canopies. At that point, Penhall Technologies was contacted. The analyst was able to successfully locate 6 power lines leading across a 30 by 300 foot parking lot. The power lines were located using the GSSI Sir 4000 with a 400MHz antenna to scan the area and used a radio detection device (RD 7100).
