ROKSTAD POWER | ERICKSON INC. Brucejack Transmission Powerline Project TRAILER
On 29 September @ 12:50, Bubba placed the final bridge to complete the 35-mile (56-kilometer) 138-kV transmission line to support the Brucejack Gold Project led by Rokstad Power. Structure 6013 weighing a total of 282,200 lbs. (128,457 kg) is one the highest transmission towers in Canada standing at 145 ft (44 m) and an altitude of around 6,000 ft. ASL. It combines a total of 31 pieces with a total of 23 picks with the S-64F Air-Crane (25,000lb max capacity) and 4 picks with the Bell 214B-1. Structure 6016 spans across the Knipple Glacier to 6017 making it the tightest wire and longest span in North America with a length of 1.4 miles (2.2-km) with the glacier sitting about 2,000 feet below. At 05:30 Thursday morning, the Aurora Borealis passed through over Power Camp. At 09:56, Bubba set its last 132nd single steel monopole tower just below the Knipple Glacier. The Brucejack Gold Mine is located just North of Stewart, British Columbia and just 25 miles from the Alaskan border. Pretium Resources Inc. plans to start commercial production in 2017 with an estimated 6.9 million ounces of gold and an anticipated 18-year lifespan. The company believes the mine will produce at least US$2.36 billion of gold. In the six-month construction window for this project, about 20 million pounds of concrete and 5.3 million pounds of steel were moved requiring 391 tower picks from the S-64F & S-64E Air-Crane. The completion of this project wouldn’t be possible without a team effort from Surveyors, Engineers, Geologists, Blast crews, foundations to include the rebar benders, truck drivers, drillers, all the many support helicopter crews, the amazing staff of cooks at camp, housing staff, maintenance personal, security, and all those crazy lineman crawling around up on the towers, and many others not mentioned. It has truly been a privilege for us all working in these remote areas of Northern British Columbia.

Most DANGEROUS Jobs In China!
Check out the most dangerous jobs in China! From factory workers to even an office job, this top 10 list of worst most risky jobs has some of the craziest careers you can choose from! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most DANGEROUS Jobs In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/fAK5uLs4UC4 Watch our "DANGEROUS Animals In Australia!" video here: https://youtu.be/NKFzu0Gw8kY Watch our "Most LUXURIOUS Prisons In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/BhFoWYBlJ8Y 10. Warehouse Workers Warehouses are used to store virtually anything you can think of, so it’s hardly a surprise that with lax safety laws the buildings can prove to be quite dangerous. In 2015, for example, an accident at a warehouse owned by Rui Hai International Logistics had tragic consequences. A fire started to rage through one of the buildings where the company was storing illegal quantities of sodium cyanide, which is an extremely toxic and volatile chemical, alongside hundreds of tons of flammable fertilizers and other industrial toxins. Firefighters responding to the blaze sprayed water on the flames, which contributed to further explosions- 2 of which were powerful enough to register as earthquakes, and led to fires raging for days that spewed out nasty, toxic fumes. By the time things were under control, 145 people had lost their lives and more than 700 had been injured- not to mention the environmental catastrophe that followed. Thousands of dead fish surfaced in the nearby river. The lack of rules and regulations in regards to warehouse storage means that no one really knows for sure what is kept within the containers. Workers will often move around hazardous chemicals without the proper safety equipment or protection. They might not even know they are at risk. 9. Law Enforcement Law enforcement can be a dangerous job no matter where you are. They are responsible for keeping citizens safe and ensuring that everyone keeps to the rules. But those involved with law enforcement around the world are not always the most popular of people- and in China it’s an incredibly dangerous job. According to recent statistics, over the past 8 years, at least every day, one Chinese police officer dies and 9 are injured. This is about twice the number of those in the US. The majority of these deaths are as a result of cardiac related issues, with a third of them being from assaults, and the rest being related to traffic incidents. There’s another type of worker in China’s law enforcement system, known as a Chengguan, that is responsible for enforcing bylaws to do with things like the environment and sanitation. They have a bad reputation for being corrupt, and are often thought of as no more than thugs- so the general public react with a great deal of anger when they feel they are acting beyond their power. This has led to a number of confrontations, including one Chengguan who was stabbed repeatedly while onlookers stood by without helping, and another who was struck in the head by a gardening tool. 8. Electrical Maintenance Workers While rules of safety at work are improving in China, they still have a long way to go. Electrical maintenance is one of the riskiest jobs in the world, period. Even more so in China. and you really need to have nerves of steel to work on maintaining power cables. As infrastructure grows and development continues to expand, the authorities are building a vast network of utility provision- including the 350 million dollar ultra high voltage power transmission line in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in the northwest of the country. Pictures emerged a couple of years ago of exactly what the workers were required to do while installing the 700 transmission towers, some of which were 12,300 feet high. It seems more like a role for a circus high-wire performer than a typical construction worker and, with no more than a safety hat and a harness, they walk out along long stretches of cable to attach the different pieces together. If you have a fear of heights, or a fear of dying, you need not apply. 7. Medical Staff Medical staff are usually respected around the world although sometimes it can be frustrating if they don’t have that personal touch. Their whole purpose of being to to take care of people who are sick or injured, but medical staff in China face challenges far more extreme than their peers around the rest of the world. They are on the front line, and feel the brunt of people’s displeasure when things don’t turn out how they expect. Patients become frustrated when their consultations last a few minutes after having waited in line for hours, and they lash out towards the medical professionals. Well, I mean, we’ve all been there.

Subscribe for latest content every week | http://bit.ly/GSLTVSubscribe Our Facebook | http://www.facebook.com/cordelljigsaw Our Twitter | http://www.twitter.com/cordelljigsaw In GREAT SOUTHERN LAND professor Steve Simpson takes viewers on a unique journey across Australia, looking at our mysterious island continent from a truly revealing perspective -- above. As we take to the skies with Steve we uncover the otherwise hidden patterns, networks and systems that keep us on the move, fed, alive and thriving. An entomologist by trade, Steve has spent his life getting the big picture from little things, looking at what allows tiny species to survive. But now, he turns his insights to a bigger creature ... with fewer legs: us! Heading for the heavens in gliders, choppers, hot air balloons and anything else that will carry him, Steve can truly appreciate the ingenuity that carved us a life in one of the most hostile corners of the planet. Our story takes us from the top of the snowy mountains, to the wilds of the Gulf of Carpentaria, to the fields of the Murray Darling Basin, the ocean south of Adelaide and the ancients forests of Tasmania. It's a story of living with floods and fires and our complicated relationship with the natural world. It's the story of satisfying our voracious appetite for life's vital ingredients: food and electricity. It's the story too of how we live on the edge -- coastal dwellers conglomerating in sprawling metropolises. And finally, it's the epic tale of how we keep it all moving: our selves, our goods, and our data. Because we hardly ever stop and think about these rhythms of life, it is a hitherto rarely told tale of high drama. Once you've seen how we do it, you'll appreciate how dangerously close to chaos we sometimes teeter. Great Southern Land isn't just Steve' personal adventure -- in its four constituent episodes we'll also meet the people behind the scenes, every-day Australians who prevent everything from falling into a heap. Many of those colorful characters work in the air -- or at dizzying heights -- themselves. Others use elevated cameras or satellite technology in their job, each having their own way of looking at Australia from up high. Among them are a 'bare hand' worker crawling a 500.000 volt live wire so you can have a cup of tea, an air cop chasing bikies and a pilot flying into storms to make it rain. Harnessing the finest high definition video shot from gyro stabilized helicopter mounts, as well as CGI technology and data visualizations from GPS tracking devices, Great Southern Land dares to think big. This is Australia as you have never seen her before.

High Voltage Cable Inspection
High Voltage Cable Inspection on 0.5MV lines. Thanks for all the comments! This is what I used to do a couple of years back, and that also it is shot so nicely, that I thought it befitting to show all. UPDATE. I have received a ton of requests regarding this video - mainly about how to get into the job. Well, the only way is to start at the bottom by becoming a trainee linesman with a power company. It is essential to have an understanding of Electrical engineering so a degree in this subject is a must have. You will have to work yourself up the ladder, demonstrating an understanding of risk and safety aspects, but most of all an ability to always be relaxed around all electrical distribution systems. Spider says it very well - "... it is not a job for a hot duck". After working you way up the ladder and proving yourself, the training can be intensive and laborious, and after many experiences in a laboratory setting having experienced the feeling of high voltage passing around you and learning to identify what feels right and wrong, you can go and train for your certification for EHV transmission systems. After this, it is more training which continues until you are experienced enough to teach the next generation. Yes - it can be considered dangerous in several ways. In the words of one of my mentors, "You will only make a mistake once Simon". Some quick answers - Suits - Made by DuPont to application specific requirements. Pay - GBP40-70k dependent on experience, certification etc The two lines are at the same potential in the video carrying one phase at 500kv Lines go up to 765kv, but there are plans to go as high as 925kv from what I read (I am not in this business any more). Although there are lines working at over 1MV DC. You cannot get life insurance. It is not as glamorous as it appears. For all the people who posted technical questions - do not believe everything that is posted as comments (although some is correct). The arcing between helicopter and line is the helicopter becoming the same potential as the line (air is the dielectric whos insulating properties break down when an object at zero potential comes within the break down point and is potential dependent), remembering that the line voltage is passing through 0v 100 times per second (or 120 times per second if you are on the other side of the Atlantic) meaning that the arc is struck that many times until the potential is equalized through the rod or bonding clamp. 500,000v is the phase to phase potential, whereas the phase to ground potential is around 288,600v. Clip is from IMAX documentary called "Straight Up", and grabbed from HD source.

Electric power distribution
An electric power distribution system is the final stage in the delivery of electric power; it carries electricity from the transmission system to individual consumers. Distribution substations connect to the transmission system and lower the transmission voltage to medium voltage ranging between 2 kV and 35 kV with the use of transformers. Primary distribution lines carry this medium voltage power to distribution transformers located near the customer's premises. Distribution transformers again lower the voltage to the utilization voltage of appliances and typically feed several customers through secondary distribution lines at this voltage. Commercial and residential customers are connected to the secondary distribution lines through service drops. Customers demanding a much higher high load may be connected directly at the primary distribution level or the subtransmission level. This video is targeted to blind users.
