Reliability is what it's all about when it comes to transmission power lines. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Regulations and Standards and North American Reliability Corporation (NERC) Compliance issues for electric power lines have caused aerial patrols to become more important among electric utilities. That's where Fostaire can help.

Through our powerline patrols we can inspect the condition of the infrastructure. Aerial patrols can also play an integral part in your Vegetation Management Program by supplying the information needed to implement an effective plan to prevent contact with lines and ensure proper clearances.
