Solutions driven utility management is at the core of Bosch Munitech and the company has always striven to achieve excellence and expand its services within this environment.
In 2011, before underground services location (USL) was a formal service offering, Bosch Munitech was approached by a bulk water supplier to locate and map buried utilities along a proposed 27 km bulk pipeline route in Johannesburg. The information was needed for design purposes. Bosch Munitech was in the fortunate position to have experienced in-house USL resources and the project was successfully completed with both positive results for the client and an exciting growth opportunity for our company.
In the early days, the Bosch Munitech team consisted of 2 technicians travelling the country with their equipment in the back of an LDV. All projects were sourced and managed from the Durban head office. Through strong marketing, the acquisition of competent resources and rigorous attention to detail in the field, the USL division steadily grew beyond KZN.
From these humble beginnings, Bosch Munitech has created a reputation as an honest and reliable USL and mapping service provider within RSA, the Southern African region and now internationally. The USL team now operates from regional offices in KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng, the Eastern and Western Cape and is capable of servicing the region within 2 to 10 days’ notice, depending on distance and scope of the work and the current USL workload.
Our current client base includes environmental scientists, consulting engineers, municipalities, the petrochemical industry and construction companies. The most recent and challenging opportunity has been in horizontal drilling, where the determination of exact service depths is crucial. Boasting a 98% accuracy rate, we are proud to provide our services to this industry.
Pipe mapping has recently become an integral part of water conservation and demand management, a service Bosch Munitech supplies along with leak detection services, CCTV inspections, meter audits and flow logging. Bosch Munitech is proud to announce that we have been awarded 3 international USL contracts, over the past 6 months, in Mauritius, Ghana and most recently at a mine in the Gobi Desert, Mongolia.
Good luck and strength to our team in the Gobi!
