Exodigo expands into UK market
20 June 2023
Exodigo, a leading provider of non-intrusive subsurface imaging solutions, has announced its expansion into the UK market and a successful initial project with Colas Rail.
Supporting the Birmingham Midland Metro Extension Project, Colas Rail used Exodigo’s technology to scan and map a project in Birmingham for part of a light rail expansion that will connect to the city’s Curzon Street HS2 (High Speed Rail 2) Station.
The Colas Rail team was encountering uncharted services that were not noted on any existing surveys or records. Using Exodigo, Colas Rail was able to detect over 280 below ground utility lines (including 51 additional lines that no other locator or records had detected), providing invaluable data that reduced redesign and delays.
With the ability to comprehensively map underground assets such as powerlines, pipes, bedrock and groundwater, Exodigo is said to give UK leaders a new way to better assess underground infrastructure risks so they can safely and efficiently execute critical capital projects.
“At Colas Rail, we pride ourselves on embracing disruptive and innovative technology. We consider ourselves changemakers, and we are extremely impressed with Exodigo’s revolutionary subsurface imaging capabilities. We look forward to employing Exodigo’s technology in our current and future capital projects to ensure safe and timely project delivery,” said Alejandro Moreno, Business Development Director Urban & New Business of Colas Rail Ltd.
