Cable and Phase Identification

Cable testing is a complex and variable field, often required supporting pieces of test equipment above and beyond the traditional thumper.

Cable Strike Avoidance

Cable Strike Avoidance:   In 2014 our sister operation, ‘LORD Civil’, was granted Australian patent AU 2005234659 B2:  METHOD FOR A QUALITY OF OUTCOME-BASED APPROACH TO THE LOCATION, MAPPING, AND MANAGEMENT OF SUB-SURFACE UTILITIES.  The patent was first filed on November 18th 2005 after many years of active commitment, research, and field trials by LORD Civil to raise and unify the ‘best practice’ in sub-surface utility location in both NZ and Australia.  This document also forms the basis of the LORD Civil IP used to inform our initial drafting in 2013 and subsequent revisionary input (in a practical implementation format) to the (then) SCIRT document ‘Best Practice Subsurface Utility Location’ also embraced (by permission of LORD Civil) locally by NZTA, the then CERA (Christchurch), and Christchurch City Council Cable strike avoidance to ensure at least 30% of cable failures are avoided.  Photo shows one of our 2 day competency-assessed training courses (based upon this patent) underway in Christchurch.
