ORFEUS standardization

Standards planning is an important work package in ORFEUS and after analysing the relevant European standards the consortium concluded that the project has the potential to go beyond the original recommendations by creating a standard. ORFEUS has agreed a cooperation with DIN (German Standardisation Organisation) and under their guidance and the leadership of Dr. Mike Farrimond of Wellington Associates, a series of Workshops took place in Berlin resulting in the development of  “DIN SPEC 91322 – Bore head radar for horizontal directional drilling; environment, conditions, limitations of use”. The work on the Standard was open to all specialists who we’re encouraged to join the ORFEUS consortium members in these discussions. The standard was published in July 2015 and is available through the DIN website – www.din.de/en/about-standards/din-spec/current-din-specs.
