Moscow Tap Energized Transmission

Moscow Tap

Client PPL Electric Utilities
Completion Date 2021
Location Pennsylvania
Completed by Harlan Electric Company

Harlan Electric Company (Harlan Electric) crews replaced 43 tangent structures, six dead-end structures, three miles of fiber, and 15 strings of insulators on a 69kV transmission line while that remained in service.  

Because the work took place while the conductor remained energized, crews replaced the tap – a two-pole dead-end angle structure – with a monopole. Other project challenges included the route, which traversed a reservoir, multiple material issues.
