Cen­tra­lines must in­spect all of its over­head as­sets at least once ev­ery five years. At present Cen­tra­lines has a lit­tle over 20,000 poles to check, ap­prox. 4,000 poles a year! This is grow­ing all the time - which is one of the rea­sons why we use a he­li­copter to cover some of the larger cross - coun­try sec­tions of line.

Th­ese in­spec­tions as­sist Cen­tra­lines to keep the power on and en­sure the power lines are Safe!, by help­ing to iden­tify and fix pos­si­ble faults be­fore they hap­pen.

In June through to mid - July The Cen­tra­lines in­spec­tor checked all the over­head poles and lines in the Waipawa town­ship.

Through July - Au­gust & Septem­ber the Cen­tra­lines in­spec­tor checked all the over­head poles and lines in the Waipuku­rau town­ship.

The pub­lic will see our Cen­tra­lines as­set in­spec­tor walk­ing and driv­ing the streets of Waipuku­rau. This in­spec­tion in­cludes the con­di­tion as­sess­ment and pho­tos of all poles - Con­crete and Wooden, cross arms, wires/ca­bles, switch’s Trans­form­ers and Earths. He will also be as­sess­ing Veg­e­ta­tion prox­im­i­ties and the ground con­di­tion be­tween poles along the road/street and cross - coun­try. This also in­cludes mea­sur­ing the heights of pow­er­lines that cross over all roads, streets and tracks.

The in­spec­tor will do a cour­tesy check on con­sumer owned lines go­ing to their con­nec­tion point and ad­vise the Con­sumer should work be re­quired to their line.

In the spring/sum­mer months the in­spec­tor will be out in the coun­try ar­eas, the in­spec­tor will no­tify the prop­erty own­ers be­fore com­ing onto their prop­erty, this is usu­ally done by a no­tice dropped in their let­ter box or door.
