Altec and Mtandt Hosted India’s First Live Line Symposium

Altec and Mtandt hosted India’s first live line Symposium at Pragati Maidan on April 5, 2019. The inaugural event, held in conjunction with the 2019 GRIDTECH International Exhibition and Conference, hosted experts from across India’s electric utility sector to discuss safe live line work practices and the positive effect insulated aerial equipment can have in providing reliable and sustainable power to India.

Attendees at the Symposium heard case studies from the USA and a special delegation from China about the long-term benefits of live line work and how insulated equipment has improved productivity, safety, and efficiency in the electric utility industry. Dr. Rajendra Kumar Pandey, Director General of India’s National Power Training Institute, was the keynote speaker and focused on trends in safety and training in India.

“The predominant work practice in India is to shut off power during line maintenance with a very small portion of the work being done on live lines,” says Chitra Ranganathan, Altec Market Development Director, Asia Pacific. “India is seeing an increased demand for uninterrupted electric power supply for industrial, commercial, and residential consumers. This demand is driving electric utilities to embrace new technologies and work methodologies.”
Altec is the leading provider of equipment for live line utility work, providing products and services in more than 100 countries throughout the world. Altec is excited to partner with Mtandt to introduce its products and services that support the construction and maintenance of utility infrastructure in India.
