Utilities across America are upgrading their storm response and recovery plans... Utility commissions are requiring companies to file updated storm and disaster recovery strategies... Florida has prescribed infrastructure hardening tactics designed to help reduce damage to critical equipment and reduce the economic impact that major storms may have on local economies. Texas is following suit with a similar proposal.
Osmose provides a variety of services to utilities during storm recovery operations. Osmose offers a large mobile workforce, experience working under the pressures of storm recovery and knowledge of electrical components and facilities - all are necessary to provide accurate and timely damage assessment and efficient support to mutual response line crews.
Osmose brings professional grade technicians to the task who are trained and equipped to work safely under challenging conditions. Our crews are versatile and can provide damage assessment, guide visiting crews, pole stripping, logistics support, staging center support, vehicle fueling and parking, tear-down and cleanup, and a host of other services. Osmose crews have won recognition from utility management for their safety, productivity and flexibility during winter and summer emergencies. Osmose technicians can come equipped with Osmose supplied mobile computers or can utilize a utility supplied system to record and communicate damage and map locations.
Osmose developed the ET-TrussTM Pole Strengthening System to help utilities improve the durability and reliability of poles to resist storms and unusual loading conditions with fewer failures and outages. The ET-Truss is a fast, cost-effective option that can upgrade poles to meet new system hardening requirements or to resolve overload conditions caused by additional attachments.
