Energy Sector Innovation - Safety
Congratulations to TransGrid and their partner Infravision in being nominated for the Energy Networks Australia (ENA) Energy Innovation Awards for 2020. They are one of four companies nominated (Western Power, Energy Queensland and SA Power Networks being the other three).
It is fantastic to see a company being nominated for a safety innovation at a time when the energy sector is focused on broader transformation. TransGrid’s entry focuses on their drone power line stringing program, delivered in partnership with Infravision.
TransGrid’s drone program is underpinned by a desire to make line work safer, removing the need for helicopters and high-platform personnel where possible. TransGrid’s number one priority is the safety of staff, contractors, and the community.
