URD Padmount Inspection

America’s underground electrical distribution systems are aging. Corroded, and severely weathered padmount transformer cabinets and other similar enclosures can contribute to outages, public safety hazards, environmental concerns, and homeowner complaints.

Supply chain issues have increased padmount equipment costs which have led to sourcing difficulties. As such, equipment availability and extended lead times have made revitalization programs very attractive for many reasons including cost efficiencies.

Osmose crews are trained and certified to:

  • Safely assess transformers and other similar enclosure equipment inside and outside
  • Identify and correct potentially detrimental conditions
  • Record accurate inventory information
  • Repair holes in equipment
  • Remove brush, debris, insects, and pests that lead to electrical failure
  • Apply pesticides inside to help prevent future pest activity
  • Level padmount transformers to keep them from overheating and failing
  • Conduct infrared inspections to detect elevated temperatures of critical components
