We recently performed repairs on some 230-kilovolt power lines in Frederick, MD, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed! It’s an honor to be highlighted in this article from the Frederick News-Post. Check out this excerpt that explains a little bit about what we do at Haverfield:
“In 2013, FirstEnergy used the same company to trim trees near some power lines in Gambrill State Park, using a saw attachment suspended from a helicopter.
Using the helicopters is often the only way to get access to a line, and allows them to move from structure to structure more quickly, Lucas said.
Their main obstacle is weather such as wind or rain, although some jobs can still be done depending on how windy it is, he said.”
We pride ourselves on employing highly qualified pilots who adhere to rigorous safety standards, and this article reinforces our commitment to these values. It also covers more of our background, including services, unique job duties, and more! You can even find some input from our Vice President of Operations, Kley Lucas.
