CANUS Corporation recently completed a territory wide electrical distribution line compliance inspection project. CANUS line inspectors surveyed overhead distribution assets as well as underground distribution assets to authenticate compliance with state guidelines for the client. In the instances when the assets were out of compliance CANUS produces recommendations and work orders within the client’s Enterprise Resource Planning tools to eliminate the infractions well within the state guidelines’ requirements.
CANUS inspected for visual pole integrity, asset management data discrepancies (including GPS location), infrared imaging of subsurface assets, fault indicator status, cross arm angle and integrity, joint pole cable management, signage, vegetation clearance, insulator integrity, guy wire integrity, vault security, etc. CANUS was able to complete the entire service territory’s compliance inspection without incident well within the client’s requested schedule and dramatically under the project budget.
The compliance inspection scope of work is a perfect demonstration of the project cost savings that the CANUS model can produce due to the recurring nature as well as the duration of the work.
