Aerial Support for

Washington Transmission Line Construction


Throughout the modern history of the Washington utility sector's existence, the use of aerial support for the construction of transmission towers, in the stringing of wires and for site inspections and surveys has made the process more efficient and cost-effective than ever before. This is especially true in performing utility services in areas of Washington that are environmentally fragile, terrestrially challenging or remote. FairLifts works in conjunction with a global network of experienced operators to deliver a fast, accurate and efficient alternative to what was formerly considered the norm for Washington's utility industry.

Helicopters are ideal for utility missions because they can achieve access to areas terrestrial cranes and OTR vehicles cannot. Thereby decreasing the need for supplemental ground crews and making the process of installing transmission towers take a fraction of the time it has previously. Washington's contractors and utility companies know the smart choice in reserving competent helicopter support for transmission tower construction is FairLifts.

Helicopter Transmission Line Construction in Washington


The state of Washington, situated in the Pacific Northwest, features a diversified terrain that spans for miles across the snow-capped peaks of the Cascade Mountains to heavily forested islands in the Puget Sound. These types of variances in landforms make the installation of transmission towers and utility accouterments therein a challenging prospect. Aerial support delivered by helicopters can be a vital asset in combating challenges posed for utility entities and linemen in constructing towers and establishing connectivity in areas consisting of by varying degrees in elevations, across waterways, through densely canopied forests, and in protected environments.

As recently as August of 2018, Tacoma Power initiated a project to supplant electric towers that had stood in Henderson Bay at the Purdy Spit since 1926 with a solitary steel pole. The electric towers originally held lines that transmitted power to Tacoma from the Cushman Dam. The project which was started in late Summer 2018 is expected to wrap up during the Fall of 2018. The initial construction took place over a waterway creating unique parameters for utility workers to work within. The project's progress was affected by the tides and at times, proved somewhat precarious as the utility entity elected to use cranes established on barges to construct the tower. Additionally, there were times when the traffic to the area had to be slowed down, rerouted or entire lanes were shut down and the fragile ecosystems surrounding the bay had to be taken into account. The utility company stressed to the community that the work would be completed timely, quietly and with as little impact on the environment and heavily trafficked thoroughfare as possible.

In cases such as this, an aerial approach could have served to benefit the community, environment, and overall outcome of the project by potentially completing it much quicker. Helicopters can deliver workers and supplies across impassable regions with little to zero effect on the surrounding areas. For the Washington utility sector and its counterparts, allow FairLifts to show you how we can help to improve your transmission tower incentives in the future.

Heavy Lifts & Tower Construction - Washington Transmission Line Construction

Heavy Lifts & Tower Construction


Heavy lift support is often utilized in the movement of personnel, materials, and hardware to the location of the tower’s installation. Transporting these items via helicopter is more expedient, less intrusive to environmentally fragile regions and the most effective way to get accouterments into higher elevations and to remote destinations. As a result of a helicopter’s functional capability to powerfully lift and convey thousands of pounds and through the utilization of specialized equipment, various types of impediments can be safely and securely transported to installation sites across Washington.


Stringing of Wire - Washington Transmission Line Construction

Stringing of Wire


In Washington, experienced linemen and seasoned utility pilots work hand and hand to swiftly and proficiently string wire along miles of transmission lines. Utilizing specialized equipment and a device called a “needle”, nylon rope can be weaved through transmission towers and can be used in the effective pulling of wire to string utility installations to establish connectivity across the state of Vermont. Helicopters deliver an advantage to wire stringing because of their adaptability making it possible to string hundreds of miles of wire in less than a days time.

Utility Pole Installation - Washington Transmission Line Construction

Utility Pole Installation


The setting of utility poles and the transporting of tubular steel or concrete used to construct pylons for transmission towers is streamlined as a result of integrated helicopter support. In regions, like Washington, where there exists a diversity in land forms, areas that are environmentally protected or wherein fragile ecosystems are found, helicopter applications are ideal because they have little to no negative impact on surrounding environments. On occasion, the need may arise for transmission lines to be strung across marshes, lakes, streams, mountain tops, etc.


ROW & Site Inspections - Washington Transmission Line Construction

ROW & Site Inspections


Prior to the implementation of aerial support, Washington’s linemen and utility workers terrestrially inspected areas surrounding towers, ROWs, and power lines. Although they still managed to effectively complete their tasks, it took days, sometimes weeks to cover the area surrounding extensive power grids. A helicopter’s inherent capability to hover at lower altitudes, their speed, on-board imaging technologies, and windowed cockpits and cabins deliver a wider more expansive viewpoint, allowing for results to be compiled more expeditiously. What previously took weeks to accomplish can now be completed in a matter of hours.

Logistical Transport - Washington Transmission Line Construction

Logistical Transport


Helicopters secure the safe and swift transport of work crews or supplementary linemen to the site of tower installations located throughout Washington. They can additionally convey senior personnel to installation sites to conduct inspections or site surveys. Helicopters are used widely in logistical transport pursuits because they can easily access destinations which may prove a difficulty for terrestrial vehicles like remote or isolated locations, terrestrially impassable regions and those located offshore.
