Since 2008 we've been renovating the now 86-year-old Ruskin Dam & Powerhouse near Mission, and we're entering the final phase, with completion expected by 2018. And we continue to put the word out about safety at our substations after a man who was burned by contact with a transformer is now facing break-and-enter charges . Also, a heads-up that the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program is accepting applications in the Peace region, and kudos to our subsidiary Powertech Labs – subject of our Photo of the Week – for making the Vancouver Sun's list of B.C.'s fastest-growing companies.
These towers are part of a high voltage setup at Powertech Labs in Surrey, where testing is conducted to locate faults in cables which cause power interruptions. Recently, the team was using drones and small car-like machines to patrol the lines to detect fault locations.
