BURRINJUCK GORGE, TRANSGRID

Infravision Case Study | April 2020

BURRINJUCK GORGE, TRANSGRID

Infravision and TransGrid partnered to use a safer methodology for stringing the 992 transmission line near Yass, Australia.

PROJECT DETAILS

This followed a recent TransGrid decision to explore a safer alternative to using helicopters for works taking place in close proximity to power lines.

Drone stringing the 992 line was broken into two sections. The first section involved stringing rope between two structures over steep, rocky inaccessible terrain in close proximity to live transmission lines. The second more challenging section involved stringing an 800m span across the Burrinjuck gorge with a 200m elevation between Burrinjuck substation and another structure.
