Sussex-based CountyClean Environmental Services has boosted its fleet of specialist vehicles by investing in the latest CCTV equipment.
The new system includes a crawler-mounted camera which allows drain experts to inspect potentially hazardous areas from a safe access point. Live footage is viewed and recorded on a computer, which is housed in a specially equipped vehicle, before being transmitted back to the office where it can be quickly downloaded for the client.
Special wheels and steering enable the ‘crawler’ to navigate past debris, through broken pipes and up inclines. The camera has a pan, tilt and zoom function and produces detailed colour images.
CountyClean has invested more than £100,000 in the equipment which is invaluable when working with clients such as Clancy Docwra who require CCTV exploration to drains and sewers carried out as quickly and safely as possible. The footage can often identify future problems or the requirement for emergency works.
CountyClean Environmental Services’ contract manager Trevor Beer said: “We’re very excited about this new vehicle as it will enable us to deliver an improved, faster service to our customers.”
