Transmission Line Mechanics (110kv to 400kv)
Transmission Line Mechanics maintain and build high voltage transmission lines for New Zealand’s National Transmission Grid and the work involves the erection, repair and/or dismantling of assets such as towers or poles. This work is completed using de-energised or live line techniques. This job suits someone with a good mix of physical and mental prowess, and who welcomes the challenge of working outdoors – sometimes in adverse weather conditions. A significant part of the work is done at heights from being suspended by a harness between 15 to 30 metres above ground level and/or from an elevated work platform, usually for overhead line construction and maintenance. You must be willing and able to travel away from home – sometimes for up to a couple of weeks, returning home for weekends, and repeating the cycle for up to a few months until the project is completed. This is a highly demanding job that requires maturity and hardiness.
