Irwin Electric Membership Corporation (EMC), based in Ocilla, Ga., has selected McLean Engineering Company to provide a pole attachment count for the Cooperative’s almost 2,000 miles of distribution line over six counties.
As part of their joint use attachment agreement, Irwin EMC is due to conduct a pole attachment count and joint use inventory on its system. Irwin EMC selected McLean Engineering to provide this count in an effort to improve relationships with its attachers. In addition to counting attachments and alerting Irwin to any obvious unsafe conditions on the system, McLean will also be providing a lighting audit and GIS location information on portions of the system for Irwin.
“I have recently been reacquainted with McLean Engineering with my new duties at Irwin EMC and have been very satisfied with McLean’s team. I look forward to working with them in the future,” said Mike McGee, Senior Vice President for Irwin and Middle Georgia EMCs.
