Electric substations represent an integral part of the electric power grid ensuring the safe, secure and reliable operation of substations is a key priority for utilities. The topic of physical security at electric substations has received increased attention from the media, politicians and regulators. During this webinar, AEGIS will provide utility members with an insight into third party liability claims reported to AEGIS involving illegal activity at electric assets and make recommendations specifically related to substation security. Participants will also learn about available options for hardening the substation perimeter including enhanced security fencing, anti-ram barriers and ballistic protection.
This webinar will also include information on new technology used to detect removal of grounding infrastructure from a substation site and to provide remote alarms to utilities in order to minimize the safety, operational and service reliability impacts of copper theft and unauthorized entry.
