Minimises risk to site personnel
Reduced time spent working at height.
Connected to OHL by 4 man team in 3 days.
Made safe in less than 1 hour.
No requirement to replace/modify existing tower.
Typical saving to developer - £1.5m.
Designed and manufactured in the UK.
Minimum foot print
For the majority of 132kV installations up to 50m high, the base size at ground level is less than 3m2. Substation equipment can be located adjacent to the POC-MASTTM.
Minimum outage requirements
Depending on the connection configuration most OHL connections can be achieved in less than 1 day.
No requirement for outages to construct complex OHL diversions.
Minimum environmental and visual impact
The POC-MASTTM design produces minimal visual impact.
No OHL diversions required; minimal erection techniques means minimal impact on the environment.
In many cases there is no need for crane erection, as the mast is lifted with a hydraulic ram.
No need for circuit diversion or outage
POC-MASTTM can be erected adjacent to the existing structure, in some cases with both circuits live.
