This partnership allows utilities, oil/gas, telecommunications and construction companies to stop the leading cause of damage to critical infrastructure. The majority of damages from excavations occur because there’s no 811 ticket….When an 811 ticket isn’t filed before digging begins, a company cannot monitor whether activity around a client’s critical infrastructure was authorized before damage occurs. This is the leading cause of damage to critical underground assets in the United States. The integration between Terra Sound’s technology and irth’s UtiliSphere platform changes that.
“Our system will see all of the activity – authorized or not – and alert our customers so they have a chance to stop unauthorized digs before damage occurs,” said Craig Borkowski, CEO of Terra Sound Technology. "This not only preserves assets but also improves safety for workers, the public and our environment.” Terra Sound uses pre-existing or newly installed fiber optic cable and intelligent monitoring software to detect vibrations. Whether the vibrations are caused by heavy equipment, a leak in a high-pressure system or someone climbing a fence to gain access to unauthorized areas, the Terra Sound system monitors and reports on it.
