Stringing Power Lines

The process of “Stringing” a power line is where wire is rolled out along and fixed to the towers. Generally, power lines stretch across wide areas and have multiple sets of wires running along its length, making the task all the more complex. The logistics, planning and execution of stringing kilometres of multiple wires to a line is highly specialised and intensive. Power lines cross many high risk areas like roads, railways, buildings or bodies of water making safety and risk assessment a primary focus. PRO RIG manages all aspects of this.
