Overhead power lines
We maintain and extend the overhead line network across the UK so homes and businesses receive their power safely. We have the largest number of highly qualified overhead linesmen in the country, working at all voltage levels.
Our teams complete project work on high voltage transmission lines which supply power to substations for conversion to a lower voltage for the distribution network. We work on steel towers up to 400kV to support the continuation of the national power supply.
Each day, our teams extend, refurbish and maintain distribution lines, typically wooden poles, working up to 132kV voltage levels.
Overhead lines can be extremely dangerous and are often uninsulated, so it is vital there are no nearby objects that could damage lines. Our specialised vegetation management teams ensure all foliage near to these lines is cleared in a safe and efficient manner.
