Transmission tower coating project for BC Hydro. The majority of work is performed with the circuits energized under Assurance of No Reclose permits from BC Hydro. Painting within column one limits of approach is achieved with a brush mounted on a certified hot stick. Certain towers with geometries that prevent coating while maintaining limits of approach have been coated under circuit outage conditions with grounding applied. Outages of telecommunications equipment are scheduled in advance for work to proceed on towers with attached telecommunication facilities.
