Allteck’s energized services team can maintain, upgrade and rebuild virtually any voltage line or substation facility with little or no power interruptions. We achieve this through highly-specialized work techniques, tools and equipment adapted for both distribution, transmission and substation projects.
Distribution energized work consists of using insulated hot-sticks and rubber gloves to provide worker protection. Due to the higher voltages, transmission live-line work includes an added set of unique techniques, tools and equipment. A fundamental component of this work is energizing the worker by “Bonding on”. Sometimes referred to as “Barehanding”, a procedure by which our skilled Powerline Technicians place themselves at the same electrical potential as the energized circuit on which they are working. This is achieved through the use of highly specialized “conductive suits” which act as a Faraday Cage, allowing the electric charge to flow around the outside of the suit and not around the worker’s body.
Furthermore, our patented LineMaster Robotic Arm™ allows for safer, more efficient repair, replacement or upgrades, giving us a unique advantage in the contracting community.
The bottom line is that energized work methods minimize disruption of service, which translates into uninterrupted revenue flow for the utility, reduced potential of devastating and costly impact on industries who rely heavily on power as well as keeping residential consumers happy.
Significant capital investments are made by owners and operators in electrical assets such as substations, distribution and transmission systems. Customers can benefit from Allteck’s extensive knowledge of towers, conductors and transformers to develop inspection and maintenance programs that maximize the life of the assets and ensure the reliability of the system. Our services include operations and maintenance, detailed condition assessments, failure analysis and life-cycle management. Allteck develops customer specific maintenance standards and operating orders to ensure the reliable operation of the facilities all within the budgets of the customer and regulatory compliance.
Allteck can utilize a customer’s existing software for asset management or we can leverage software that is proprietary to Quanta Services so as to provide reports and information that enable our customers to make sound business decisions.
Allteck’s asset management services include:
- Operations and Maintenance
- Condition Assessments
- Cost Benefit Analysis
