Our aluminum modular towers, also called emergency towers are of utmost importance to power utilities and Transmission System Operators (TSO). They allow to quickly restore power by creating a temporary bypass around transmission lines damaged by natural events (hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, etc) or by human acts (terrorism, sabotage, accidents, etc).

These towers also allow to minimize power outages during scheduled maintenance on the transmission lines.

The complete system was designed and tested to ensure a simple, quick and safe installation. Users are able to restore power on their lines in a few hours/few days instead of a few weeks.

Emergency towers

 

Our towers are also used as met masts to measure and analyze the wind production potential of future wind farms sites or to confirm previous data projections of existing sites. Our masts are extremely robust and can resist temperature changes in extreme climates (ice, wind, extreme heat, highly corrosive environments). They also allow developers to measure the wind at heights up to 125 meters/400 ft.
