Tower Power - Live Line Transmission Tower Painting
Tower Power has extensive experience in partnering with electric utilities, corrosion experts, testing facilities, industry organizations and coatings manufacturers to provide a range of services in managing corrosion risks.
For utilities looking to get started, improve current efforts or merely investigate the status of their towers and poles, the following are key learnings and steps.
Steel will corrode in the presence of moisture and chemicals such as salts, chlorides, sulphates, and nitrates. As a function of time, galvanized steel loses its protection and bare steel is exposed to degradation depending on existing environmental conditions.
Electric utility galvanized steel structures are located in a wide variety of challenging jurisdictions and service environments. It is important that a utility assesses the state of its infrastructure by conducting knowledge-based surveys and inspections to determine the extent, rate, and progression of any corrosion-related degradation.
Commence a corrosion risk management program when evidence indicates corrosion is happening to your structures. Information from assessments should be prioritized and pilot programs started to ensure appropriate processes, standards, materials and resources are made available. These pilot programs provide a comprehensive blueprint for a thorough & complete risk management program.
