Excavation Simulator in Drumright
In Drumright, Central Tech installed an excavation simulator through a grant from TC Energy, formerly TransCanada. “The new training area available to companies in the Central Tech district, allows company employees to safely learn how to perform line locates prior to excavation,” said Mark Cotner, BIS director, Central Tech. “In addition, employees can conduct an excavation using their own equipment.”
The excavation training site features an underground system of metal pipe, poly pipe, and electrical/communication cables in various sizes buried at different depths. Above ground, power poles with overhead electrical lines simulate a typical excavation site will soon be added to the site.
