Preventing a severe disruption of leading scientific research
Weizmann Institute of Science, one of the world’ s leading multidisciplinary research institutions in natural and exact sciences, engaged RodRadar to support its sub-contractor in safely placing a 2m-diameter drainage line across the institute’s entire campus. In addition to detecting all the underground utilities previously mapped by the contractor’s surveyor, the LDR technology also exposed two unmarked utilities, a fiber-optic cable and a live powerline. This prevented potentially severe disruption to the institute’s scientific research, as well as mitigating the clear safety risks.
Lately, we have suffered a lot from electrical, fiber-optic and other infrastructure failures, which has significantly and negatively impacted our scientific activities. With RodRadar’s LDR technology, we discovered that we can safely execute an infrastructure and development project without disrupting our research and educational work.
