This Just In From A Satisfied Rapid Overhead Deployment Trailer Owner:
“We had a tree that fell on the wire breaking two 40′ poles while the three phase 266 energized wires were pinned underneath the tree.
Our troubleman, the construction & maintenance crew and tree trimmers worked together to expedite the outage.
Per our work ticket, 262 customers were dropped in order to make the site safe.
We turned it over to the tree trimmers and after the tree was removed, our crew set the Rapid Overhead Deployment Trailer approximately half way between the two downed poles. We clipped in the conductors and all customers were restored in 92 minutes.
We estimate that the outage was reduced by at least three hours by using Sauber’s Rapid Overhead Deployment Trailer.”
