Further substation work for ENWL in the North West

Signature Materials have just started a programme of work on substations in the north west as ENWL look to lock down certain hot spot areas, where theft from substations has happened previously. As well as the marking of earth strap, Signature Materials are trialling a new system of using tamper proof labelling, again traceable back to a given location. This allows other materials/items to be identified, and in the event of theft tracked back to their origin/owner.

This new programme of work includes work on indoor stations and outdoor stations ( including those pole mounted systems often found in rural/isolated areas).  Backed up with high visibility signs the idea is a clear deterrent to potential thieves, as well as making it harder to pass on stolen materials.
