Dangerous High Voltage Job – Live Transmission Line Maintenance

at 5:15 am. Filed under What Were They Thinking


I don’t mind working with the voltages you find in a typical house but I always feel a bit less secure when working with higher voltages that have little current limiting. I think that it would take me a long time to feel comfortable to ride a helicopter over to a live transmission line, hop on and start working.

    […] Monitoring power lines can be done by people but it is a time consuming and expensive. It’s a job that needs to be done because of inventions like the Bat Hook Power Tap. Hydro-Quรฉbec Research Institute and BC Transmission Corporation have developed a robot that is capable of inspecting these lines while they are still powered. That’s not a big deal right since the power lines is a perfect platform to hang a robot from and roll along. The hitch comes when the power line is connected to the transmission tower, that is where this robot excels since it can traverse from one section of line to the next! […]
