Accident prevention through cutting down trees

Trees cutdown at snow area In order to prevent trees from contacting with or falling down on power distribution and transmission lines due to snow accretion and high wind, we cut down trees in cooperation with land owners.


Measures against snow, lightning and bird hazard to transmission line

 We reinforce our facilitates and equipment in a well-planned manner such as installation of interphase spacers to prevent snow hazard to transmission line, installation of lightning protection systems to prevent lightning hazard, installation of bird hazard prevention devices and others.
