Overhead Line Corrosion
Our Overhead Line Corrosion testing provides an assessment of the level of corrosion in the steel supporting reinforcement of the aluminum conductor, providing information on the performance and projected life of the power Line.
The technology ATTAR uses provides information on the condition of the conductor well in advance of infra-red or visual inspection methods and can provide information on the condition of an entire span of power line.
This information can be used to form a network-wide condition map, identifying and prioritising replacement and maintenance scheduling, preventing unpredicted failure of conductors.
This method also requires minimal disruption to the network as it is conducted on live and de-energised power lines.
The advanced testing methods ATTAR utilise can be undertaken on both energised and de-energised line, removing any disruption to the network.
Minimise expensive inspections
Traditional NDT and inspection methods often require complete asset isolation, with expensive and lengthy wind-down procedures. ATTAR’s condition monitoring provides information on if such inspections are necessary in the short and medium term, minimising unnecessary costs and allowing prioritisation of the assets.
Keep your assets and people safe
Regular condition monitoring provides a record of the condition of an asset throughout its life. This information allows for changes in condition to be analysed and life cycle estimates to be developed, significantly reducing the likelihood of unexpected failures and ensuring the safety of all asset users.
