Project Overview

Each year, ElectraNet undertakes patrols of its overhead transmission lines, by helicopter, to identify any potential issues.

Aerial inspections form part of ElectraNet’s bushfire readiness program and continue throughout November and December to reduce the possibility of supply interruptions and ensure the safety of the public and the network.

Flights are scheduled from 7am – 5pm along all major transmission lines across South Australia including the Mount Lofty Ranges, Adelaide Plains, Upper and Mid North, Flinders Ranges, Eyre and Yorke Peninsulas and the Upper and Lower South East regions.
