Helicopter patrols of transmission lines in lower and central North Island

15 January 2015

A helicopter will be carrying out routine maintenance inspections of our high voltage transmission lines across parts of the central and lower North Island during late January and early February (weather permitting).

This work is critical to ensure the continuation of a safe and reliable service to the central and lower North Island.

The work will involve a helicopter flying at around 300 metres so the transmission line and underlying topography can be surveyed.

Our hours of work are typically 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. This work is weather-dependent and the schedule may be changed at the last minute.

It’s important to us that you are kept informed and updated on our activities. If you require further information or have any concerns, please call our Project Manager Paul Koot on 0800 40 05 25.
