Battery Theft Runs Out

THEFT of batteries from Flow telecom sites in Jamaica has been reduced to zero following the introduction of a scheme using SelectaDNA and tracking software to protect equipment belonging to the company.

Together with another supplier (Digicel), Flow had previously suffered hundreds of millions of Jamaican dollars in losses from their cellular sites which had been targeted for batteries, cable, fuel and generators.

Over a period of 15 months since the Flow scheme began, not a single battery housed in a unit marked by SelectaDNA Trace and fitted with a tracker has been stolen.

Digicel has also invested in SelectaDNA and tracking software which has resulted in the recovery of 200 stolen batteries with a value of more than US dollars 97,500.
