Peter Whelan - Alinta
"Alinta East operates electric utilities that supply electricity to more than one million customers in greater Melbourne, Australia.
Electric substation copper theft has been a regular issue for our business. Stealing copper places both the perpetrators and the network at serious risk, prompting our business to investigate how to minimise the number and the impact of these thefts.
Our business is very pleased with the product. We have placed the product on our critical infrastructure such as electric substations, including the overt warning signage as recommended. Since the application, our business has suffered two thefts. This compares with 46 thefts in the 18 months preceding the application."
