Convenient for many people
Ledningskollen is not only useful for cable and pipe owners, but also private individuals, businesses, public and municipal authorities and others planning or undertaking earthworks.
It is extremely risky to excavate a site without first submitting an enquiry to cable and pipe owners via Ledningskollen. Anyone damaging a cable or pipe may be liable to pay compensation.
Easy to find out about cables and pipes
Making an enquiry is easy. First create an account with Ledningskollen and then log in and create a query by entering the necessary information. This information is sent to cable and pipe owners affiliated to Ledningskollen with infrastructure close to the area referred to in the query. You will then receive a response from those cable and pipe owners that have infrastructure at the location where you are excavating.
For cable and pipe owners (current and prospective)
Ledningskollen also makes it easy for those representing an infrastructure-owning business or organisation to register areas where they have cables and pipes.
Are you planning to build a cable or pipe network but have not started yet? If so, the service can be used to mark areas where you want to build, increasing your prospects of identifying coordinated digging opportunities and thereby reducing your costs.
Municipal broadband coordinators and others working with promotion of broadband development, together with those working to roll out the broadband network, can use Ledningskollen to identify rollout and coordination opportunities.
Ledningskollen is a free service
This service is financed by public funds. There is no charge to register current and planned cable and pipe networks or create queries in Ledningskollen.
Security and benefit
Ledningskollen does not collect information about the exact location of cables and pipes for reasons of security and confidentiality. Ledningskollen can also only answer questions about the infrastructure of those participants supporting the service. The more parties supporting the service, the more extensive its positive effects in the form of fewer cables and pipes being damaged and greater coordination opportunities.
