Ground Penetrating Radar

All excavation/construction work has the potential to damage underground assets.

It is your duty of care to have an accredited locator identify all utilities and assets in the vicinity or any work site prior to the commencement of the project.

Abletech Underground Group uses state of the art equipment such as the ground penetrating radar (GPR) that confidently assists in the location of underground utilities and assets.

How It Works

The ground penetrating radar has the ability to detect underground assets of all densities, metallic and non-metallic.

The GPR has revolutionised the industry as it is capable of coinciding shallow and deep penetration of up to 6 metres simultaneously.

Data collected from the Ground Penetrating radar (GPR) allows our locaters to construct a view of the subsurface utilities.

Our service location vehicles are fully equipped with the most up to date location devices such as:

  • Ground penetrating radar
  • Electronic marker locator
  • Ferrous magnetic locator
  • GPO signal generator
  • Metal detector
  • Sonde on push rod
  • 4.5 meter camera for small drainage jobs
  • Variety of tools- example: shovels, pit keys, barricades ECT


Abletech Underground Group locators are capable of interpreting plans and can accurately locate underground utilities, line of direction and depth.

Our location services combined with our vacuum excavation potholing capabilities ensure we are the most accurate underground service location company.
