We specialize in new construction, upgrades, and maintenance of overhead high-voltage transmission lines through 345 kV.
Our dedicated transmission crews build and service major assets for many of the nation’s largest utility companies, regional electric cooperatives, and municipalities, while maintaining our reputation of safety, environmental responsibility, efficiency, and exceeding our clients’ expectations.
Sentry Electrical Group manages all aspects of your transmission line project, from siting and permitting to complete construction and line energizing. Our safety advisors are involved throughout the process to ensure operational safety.
We involve our team members from the beginning of the project; they conduct a field reconnaissance and survey obstacles to optimally route the line. Once design is underway, our engineers stake the poles and anchors themselves to make sure the poles are positioned properly.
Our construction managers are consulted during the design process to discuss constructability concerns. Material suppliers give feedback to our design engineers during pole selection to help them understand what factors could contribute to unnecessary material cost increases.
During construction, our field inspectors are onsite to review pole framing and installation, as well as stringing, sagging, and clipping of conductors. Multipoint quality checks are performed at each step of this process so construction is safely completed on time and to design specifications. These quality checks also verify that the transmission line will provide great service throughout its expected useful life.
The collaboration of engineering, construction and material suppliers provides our customers with the safest, most efficient, and cost effective transmission lines.
