On Aug. 7 and 8, 2018, Osmose inspected 36 poles on an Ohio electric cooperative’s distribution system that were inspected by a company utilizing their sonic inspection device earlier in the year. The original inspection company has been doing the coop’s pole inspections for a decade. Director of Business Development Paul Brewster convinced the pole owner to allow Osmose to perform partial excavations or full inspections on the group of poles. The only information available to us at the time of our inspections was whether the inspection company had passed or rejected the poles based on the tagging and flagging that was attached to each pole.
