This was Cianbro's first Energized Structure Change-Out project. A full scale training mock-up was constructed at our training facility for team members to practice and fine tune safe "hot stick" methods.
Scope of Work
Cianbro replaced four energized 345 kV Wood H-Frame Tanget Structures located in three different towns and 75 miles apart.
For each H-Frame Tanget Structure Cianbro performed the following:
- Mobilized tracked equipment to and from the structure locations
- Spotted, excavated, set and backfilled new poles and demolished the old poles
- Framed new structures and demolished the old structures
- Transferred energized conductors utilizing "hot stick" procedures
Lean, Innovative, and Unique Project Solutions
Cianbro team members completed the energized structure change-outs during the coldest and shortest days in December.
