Southside Electric Cooperative Pole Reinforcing
GeoForce Utility Technologies has begun its contract work with SEC performing pole maintenance. The contractor is installing steel reinforcing trusses using a pneumatic air hammer. Reinforcing trusses are used strategically to safely strengthen existing poles and extend their serviceable life. Trusses can be installed without interruption of service to our members, while pole replacement may require a temporary outage.
Currently, GeoForce is working in the Hooper Substation area. Over the next two weeks, GeoForce will be performing the reinforcement work not only in the Hooper Substation area, but also around the Fort Pickett and Briery substations. If you have any questions related to this work, please contact SEC at 1-800-552-2118.
