Utility Infrastructure

One of the fastest growing crimes in the UK is metal theft. Due to an increase in demand from Asian markets copper, lead, stainless steel, aluminium and scrap iron have all seen dramatic increases in value making them targets for theft.

The electricity, water and gas utilities infrastructures are seen as an easy target for organised criminal gangs and opportunist thieves alike, with no regard to the serious health and safety implications, and ensuing disruption their activities leave behind. Unfortunately remote utility construction sites are being targeted with monotonous regularity. 

PID Systems, working closely with a number of the UK’s leading utility suppliers have developed a range of standalone, armoured, wireless, battery powered (4 years) security products, designed for easy deployment and total reliability in the substation, WTW and gas supply network construction environments.

Whether you are experiencing copper earth strap and cable theft from substations or steel and aluminium theft from water treatment works or have a requirement to secure infrastructure construction projects, PID has a solution. 

From site survey through to installation of our bespoke, armoured, wireless, battery powered ‘Armadillo’ Video Guard / CCTV tower solutions to ongoing maintenance, alarm monitoring and response, PID can provide you with a complete site security package or certain elements of the package if you prefer.
