Our aluminum modular and reusable transmission tower systems, 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 permanent high voltage transmission lines and structures 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.


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.



SBB supports you in your projects of complex aluminum structures thanks to its machining center, and its triple competence in welding which includes TIG, MIG, and FSW (Friction Stir Welding).

In addition to the manufacturing and assembly of your parts in the factory, our team of engineers can offer you a design assistance service. Within this framework, we contribute to the design study of your extrusions in order to facilitate their implementation. Thus, the overall production of your final product is improved and accelerated.

Need to outsource the management of all or part of your concept setup ? SBB will undertake the coordination of all manufacturers of spare parts in order to provide you with a turnkey product, assembled in our factory.
