Helicopter check on lines


Helicopter inspection of power transmission lines by Transend Networks has been taking place in a wide range of areas across the North.

Asset officer for transmission lines in the North, Maurice Webb, said that helicopter inspections were commonly used to detect problems on transmission lines and to check vegetation growth under and beside lines.


Transend contracts the helicopter from Brisbane- based company Aeropower to do inspections Statewide, usually between the months of October to February, weather permitting.
