Service Locations

Orbital Underground Service Location uses radio electronic technology to locate services without disturbing existing conditions. Either by direct connection or tracing copper rod inserts this is the most cost effective method, as its small size makes it easy to use for long distances and confined spaces and its ability to locate conductors makes it the best method for locating underground services.

So if you are involved in:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Pipeline Contracting
  • Footpath Excavation
  • Concrete Cutting or Core Holes
  • Road works
  • Development
  • Council
  • Earthmoving, Excavation and Trenching
  • Landscaping
  • Telecommunications Contractor
  • Fencing Contractor
  • Building Contractor
  • Construction
  • Swimming Pool Construction
  • Plumbing and Gas
  • Electrical Contracting
  • Schools
  • Hospitals

The following services may be located using this technology:

  • Telstra & Communications Cables
  • High Voltage and Low Voltage Power Cables
  • Metal & PVC Pipes
  • Gas Main & Related Services
  • Sewer & Storm water Pipes

Please contact us to arrange for the appropriate Underground Service scan before you commence construction.


Fault Location

From large inner city buildings to the residential household, our power supplies are increasing going underground. This makes the detection of electrical faults significantly important. Power, telecommunications and data are all located using the same method.

Starting with a standard locate we are then able to pinpoint the fault accurately with the use of an “A” frame locator. Cable Fault location can be carried out on:

  • Telstra cables
  • Data cables
  • Low Voltage domestic supplies
  • 22,000Volt High Tension Distribution Lines

Orbital Underground Service Location can offer these specialised services in case of emergency or can be planned into your maintenance schedule. Simply discuss your requirements with our Operations Manager.

Our Machinery is designed to save time and money for you and your project, we welcome all calls to discuss how it may serve you best.

Concrete Scanning

As with standard excavation work, similar risks are present when it comes to cutting, coring and drilling concrete. Electrical, telecommunications and plumbing services can all be present within concrete slabs. Additionally, concrete also conceals reinforcing and pre and post tensioning features that need to be avoided to save damaging machinery and damage to the integrity of the concrete structure itself.Concrete scanning, used in addition to conventional locating techniques, provides this margin of safety and cost efficiency when carrying out these tasks.
