LinesearchbeforeUdig Limited (LSBUD) is pleased to welcome three new members onto its service, namely, CEMEX, Fulcrum and Dong Energy.
LSBUD is a, free to use, online search service that any individual can use to check their works against over 50 asset owners’ (“Members”) utility assets.
These assets include hundreds of thousands of kilometres of underground and overhead pipes and cables in the electricity, gas, high pressure fuel, water and fibre optic networks. The service processes over 1.6 million enquiries per annum- that’s more than one every 20 seconds.
In the beginning of June 2016, LSBUD, welcomed CEMEX as a new asset member. CEMEX UK's 57mile pipeline pumps around 4,000 cubic metres of chalk slurry from Kensworth each day, passing under the M1 four times on its journey and saving up to 400 lorry movements every day.
LSBUD also welcomed Fulcrum and Dong Energy in July 2016.
Fulcrum is a multiple award winning, independent utilities infrastructure organisation, providing technical engineering, design, project management, consultancy and audit services across gas and multi-utility connections.
Fulcrum Pipelines Limited (FPL), owns and operates networks of gas pipelines and their related infrastructure.
DONG Energy is one of the leading energy groups in Northern Europe developing, constructing and operating offshore wind farms.
Richard Broome, Manging Director of LSBUD, said:
“At LSBUD we’re committed to ensuring that third parties undertaking excavations are able to get the information they need quickly and efficiently every time in advance of starting works. This helps protect our new and existing LSBUD Members’ assets, keeping the third parties, the general public and the assets safe.
We’re really proud that such established asset owners such as the trio mentioned have realised the benefits of joining a single online collaborative portal and will enjoy delivering these benefits to them over the coming months.”
