Visit: http://lemyers.com/ WAYNESBORO, Virginia – The L.E. Myers Co. (L.E. Myers) a subsidiary of MYR Group, demonstrated its commitment to clients by rapidly training and deploying a special team of line workers to help energize a transmission line in Virginia.
It was already a week into December when Dominion requested the company’s immediate help to inspect and tighten every loose conductor suspension clamp along the newly rebuilt 39-mile Lexington-Dooms line, which runs through the Shenandoah Valley. There were only 15 days left to complete the work before the Dec 23rd deadline.
The 500kV/230kV underbuild configuration meant there were six conductor connections to examine per structure, which ranged from 150 to 170 feet fall.
To expedite matters, a helicopter company was brought in to provide the needed ‘lift.’ Locating qualified line workers to deploy onto the conductors from a long line… on short notice…right before the holidays…was the tough part.
But the L.E. Myers team based in Rural Hall, NC didn’t hesitate when they received the request.
