Illuminating Company Helicopter Patrols
Starting on August 13th, weather permitting, Chesapeake Bay Helicopters (CBH) will be performing Routine Patrols in The Illuminating Company on select 345kV and all 138kV lines. CBH will be patrolling The Illuminating Company territory full time until the patrols are completed – patrols are estimated to take 1-2 weeks to complete, weather permitting. The following helicopter will be used for the Routine Patrols:
N719CB – Blue, Bell 206 Jet Ranger
A Routine Patrol is flown at 25-35mph and is a general, overall look at the transmission line, structures, and associated hardware. The helicopter may at times be seen hovering over a particular structure or span of a transmission line to get a closer look at any issues found during the patrol(s). It should be noted that the contractor has been authorized to patrol the transmission circuits in their entirety (i.e. “breaker-to-breaker”), so patrols on certain lines may therefore extend into the neighboring regions. The flight crew provides information on their daily location to both Transmission Lines Maintenance and the FCC, and the pilot will be in communication with any local airports when in their airspace.
PLEASE NOTE THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT FOR THE CITY OF BROOK PARK IS NOW LOCATED AT 5590 SMITH ROAD.
