Our Expertise in Power Line Services

Why blast when we can bore? Ranging from 12”-22” diameter and a 12’ depth, our rock boring equipment allows utility pole installation in bedrock at a fraction of the cost of rock mounting or blasting.


Just say where. No terrain is inaccessible, no environment is too sensitive for our horizontal directional drill team to use their integrity and state-of-the-art equipment to get the results you need and the job done right.

Our Dry Ice technology ensures our crews can safely clean energized equipment operating at distribution and transmission voltages up to 230KV.  Our technology can even ensure pad mounted and substations are cleaned without removing the equipment from service.
