SECO Energy, a three-time J.D. Power award winning utility in Central Florida, recently selected McLean Engineering Company to provide an inventory of the Cooperative's joint use attachments.
SECO Energy is due to conduct a field audit of the joint use attachments on its poles. After a competitive bidding process, SECO selected McLean Engineering to provide this count in an effort to collect information on a GIS basis, along with georeferenced photos, to update and improve its existing records.
McLean works with many municipalities, cooperatives, investor-owned utilities, and state trade organizations to navigate through joint use concerns by providing expertise in all areas related to joint use and pole attachment matters.
