Correct NERC Thermal Rating POI's on Energized Lines

October 20th, 2012

The patented PhaseRaiser® structure lifting system for LWS is the most economical solution available to increase conductor clearance on energized transmission lines. The system includes field training of crews and specialized equipment trailers that are available for lease or purchase. Scores of utilities in North America have safely raised over 12,000 structures an additional 5, 10, 15, or 20 feet!

LWS engineers will analyze your structures and recommend the appropriate steel PhaseRaiser® members. A crew of 5 qualified lineworkers can raise 3 to 5 structures per day, without taking an outage. Many utilities report that raising structures with the PhaseRaiser® system costs an average of one-third the cost of structure change-outs. The savings add up even more because the work is done on live lines, not requiring expensive outages.
