Overhead line insulation systems/ asset management implications of
using new technology (principally life expectancy and associated
ageing mechanisms). Maintenance of these technologies once
installed on the system.
National Grid is engaged in a further two projects to study composite
insulators to gain experience in and develop methods and
procedures for the handling, installation and maintenance of both
Composite Technology Corporation conductor (fibre glass core) and
polymeric insulator strings.
