This project will study the vulnerability of the transmission network to damage from landslips and landslides, and prove the use of a landslide protection system.
The key objectives for the project are:
  • To develop a RAG database of assets which are highly vulnerable to impact from landslides. The database will enable SPEN to assess the pylons at most risk to be impacted from landslides and to apply appropriate mitigation measures.
  • To prove that installing mitigation measures can be done safely to a selected ‘high risk’ pylon.
