The key deliverables of this project will include;
The adaptation of recognised methodologies (debris netting, hand-held vacuum, industrial vacuum with manifold system) for mitigation of the effects of cleaning structural steel work and the demonstration of the effectiveness of these solution for use on National Grid’s overhead line towers during outage & non-outage conditions.
The creation of a procedure/manual to support ongoing implementation of the techniques developed.
The success of the project will be based on the following criteria:
- The identification of an appropriate, cost effective approach to capturing dust and debris during the abrasion process of preparation
for re-painting through assessment and demonstration of three potential options.
- The development of supporting documentation to assist the approach being implemented within National Grid.
