Temporary Feeds

Our crew worked to replace a temporary power feed for the Burlington Skyway lighting and overhead signs along the QEW. They ran the new cable feed up the cable tray of the support structure and across into junction boxes.

Rock Drilling

There is a lot of prep work that goes into setting a new utility pole. Our crew has spent the week rock drilling for pole anchors to be set into the ground.

Pole Climb

When working in tight spaces it is not always possible to get a bucket truck close enough to a pole. Our linesmen had to go old school this week using climbing spurs to reach the top of the pole, where he removed 2 phases and changed out a top pin to a 27.6kv insulator. This was in further preparation for the conversion from 5kv to 27.6kv.

Digger Derrek Line Truck

Our Power Linesman is using our Digger Derrek Line Truck to stand a highway direction sign along the QEW.

New Pole Line

Over the past few weeks the weather was cooperating and the SGC crew has been on site installing a new pole line for a 5KV transmission with a 27KV over build. Even bedrock isn't slowing us down!

Hydro Excavation

Hydro excavation is an environmentally friendly process that uses high pressurized water as well as an industrial strength vacuum to excavate and evacuate soil. High pressure water is used to break up soil, rock, gravel etc. while being vacuumed into a debris tank for later disposal. Our Hydro Excavation team was on site for a customer exposing underground utilities and cleaning catch basins.
