Poletecs Secures Exacter Utility Reliability Technology Alliance for UK and Ireland

Exacter, Inc. has awarded an exclusive sales, marketing, and distribution agreement for UK and Ireland to Poletecs Ltd of Greenfield, Flintshire, Wales.

Poletecs Ltd is a UK provider of pole inspection, asset management, and pole maintenance. Exacter technology allows the company to extend its product offering to current customers by providing reliability monitoring of electrical components on overhead electrical lines.

“There is nothing like Exacter technology in the UK,” stated Poletecs Director Steve Horsman. “With Exacter information, we can now provide our utility customers with the ability to remove faulty equipment before failure, prevent power outages, and harden their distribution systems for improved reliability.”

Poletecs Limited is the first international company to be awarded an Exacter alliance sales and service agreement. Exacter is currently in negotiations with several similar in-country service organizations in Asia, Europe, and the Pacific Rim. “We have patent-pending status in the top 45 industrial nations around the world, and over the next two years expect to have alliance partners in many of the key utility markets,” Anderson says. “We are unique in that we have a breakthrough technology that also has a proven business model. That is rare. It allows us to be selective in choosing proven alliance partners like Poletecs and Osmose that are positioned for success.”

Exacter’s technology identifies overhead line equipment in fail-condition providing a pre-fail alert to utilities – allowing them to take pre-emptive maintenance action to avoid outages, eliminate erroneous arcing noise, and ultimately, improve overall distribution reliability. More than 100 North American utilities have used/are using Exacter technology and services since the company’s launch in 2007.
