CR Kennedy bags contract for utility locator system

By on 22 May, 2019

C.R. Kennedy Survey has won a contract for the supply and maintenance of more than fifty leading-edge utility locating systems for Comdain.

Vivax-Metrotech’s vLoc3 Pro advanced utility locator will help Comdain to execute its utility identification work with utmost accuracy and reliability while abiding by the latest requirements stipulated by asset owners and Dial-Before-You-Dig (DBYD) Australia.


The vLoc3-Pro utility locator brings innovative tools to the table for locating buried utilities and prevents damage while gathering information for analysis.  The system is also capable to log outcomes and communicates the details through its cloud-based mobile application VMMAP, which allows customers to monitor fieldwork, remotely and in real-time.

Maurice Borer, C.R. Kennedy’s National Product Manager for Detection and GIS Mapping System, stated, “This contract award reaffirms C.R. Kennedy’s technology leadership in providing the most advanced underground detection systems available today for safety, management, and automation of underground detection and mapping tasks.”

“We are extremely pleased that Comdain decided to roll out the vLoc3 Pro across its entire Victorian operation. Our combination of best of breed technology, specialist in-house consulting expertise, and repair facilities will deliver Comdain with superior performance along with sustained economic benefits,” added Borer.
