InSite BoreAid®

Time consuming to provide project owners with detailed design of installation based on industry standards.

Difficult to create a consistent, electronic bore plan to design, plan and install a project.

Tools

  • Overview

    InSite BoreAid® design tool takes user through the design and planning process of an HDD bore in a sequential manner.

    The program considers soil conditions, product type, machine and other parameters as chosen by the user.

    It also creates an electronic file to share with project owner.

    Benefits

    Provides Comprehensive Documentation

    • Constructs a detailed design dealing with many aspects of the project, from bore path planning and load calculations to pipe selection and drilling fluid requirements.
    • Produces project design or construction submission documents efficiently.

    Uses Industry Standards and HDD Best Practices

    • Takes into consideration compound curves and horizontal bending.
    • Provides an understanding of allowable pressure and forces, and also performs a risk assessment for inadvertent returns, based on pipe and soil properties.
    • Calculate operational and installation loads at every drill rod following the industry accepted standards – ASTM-F1962 for plastic pipe and PRCI guides for steel pipe.
    • Visually compare and measure deviations between as-built and original design.

InSite Projects

Potential for the crew to miss steps in the jobsite process which can impact jobsite timelines and increase risks and costs to the operation.

Time consuming trying to accurately bill customers, which can delay payment for services rendered.

Many times engineering plans are confusing or don't translate to reality.

TOOLS

  • Overview

    InSite Projects is a web-based planning application that can map a jobsite and plan a bore. The application is accessible via computer, tablet or phone.

    Provides a bird's-eye view of the project, showing a map of the job area, the proposed and existing marked utility locations, the bore path and other contextual information important to plan a project effectively.

    Instead of working through a stack of paper files, input the data into InSite Projects and have a repository for the information related to your projects.

    A bore can be planned and the documents can be sent electronically to the inspector for permitting. If plan changes are required in the field, the user can input the changes to the bore plan via their phone or tablet and then can resubmit electronically to the inspector or project owner.

    Once the job is complete, the user can export a professional report of the project in a timely manner.

    Benefits

    Virtual Visit of a Job Location
    • Shares easy-to-understand visual map with others in real time.
    • Marks bore entry, bore exit and crossing utilities to reduce onsite risk.
    File Sharing of Project Information
    • Updates and consolidates job plan changes in one file.
    • Accessible by multiple team members in multiple locations.
    Better Bore Planning Ability
    • Fuses surface, subsurface and topographical views into one.
    • Alerts user when issues such as overbending may be encountered.
    Record Retrieval
    • Keep records easily accessible after a job is finished.
    • Reduces paper files and the 'mess on your desk.'

    Mapping

InSite Mapping

Contractors are faced with many challenges on the jobsite – completing a drilling operation in a timely manner and crossing various underground utilities.

Plus contractors don't have efficient ways to collect information and share the project data [locates, white lines, landmarks (points of interest) etc.] with all stakeholders.

Tools

  • Overview

    InSite Mapping provides a GPS-enabled function to record a white line or mark where a proposed excavation or bore will take place.

    The user will walk the path, identifying the location of the existing marked and proposed utility lines and applying the correct color coding to the utility based on the type of utility captured by the user.

    The tool can transfer the data directly into InSite Projects for bore and job planning purposes, and collects as-built information entered by the user once the job is complete to record installation location.

    Benefits

    Jobsite Information
    • Helps create and detailed visual plans.
    • Can reduce the risk of human error in noting where utilities have been marked on the ground by using a GPS device of choice.
    Data Sharing
    • Import bore path and existing marked utility information directly into InSite Projects.
    • Can help increase the accuracy of the bore planning job compared to traditional paper jobsite plans.
    Utility Location
    • Notes the type of utility entered by the user when the information is imported into InSite Projects.

InSite BoreAssist

Planning a bore if changes are needed can pose challenges and potentially increase drilling operation complexity.

Logging the drill head locate information in relation to a bore plan can be a very manual- and paper-based process.

Monitoring actual bore to the plan is challenging.

Tools

  • Overview

    Jointly developed by Vermeer and Digital Control Incorporated (DCI), InSite BoreAssist lets the user load, edit or create a bore plan or log as-built data in relation to the plan – on the DCI DigiTrak® Aurora™ display.

    The drill operator loads the bore plan in the Aurora™ display. The drill operator can then follow the rod-by-rod plan to install the desired product.

    User can also design a simple bore in the field using pre-loaded templates.

    Benefits

    Bore View
    • Operator can load and review a bore plan on Aurora™ display, increasing the opportunity for a successful drilling operation.
    Bore Plan
    • Create a simple bore plan on-rig, providing data points such as entry and exit.
    Log Data
    • Log drill data with a push of a button.
