Attendees heard case studies from the USA and a special delegation from China on the long-term benefits of live line work and how insulated equipment has improved productivity, safety, and efficiency in the electric utility industry. Dr. Rajendra Kumar Pandey, Director General of India's National Power Training Institute, was the keynote speaker who talked about trends in safety and training in India.
"The predominant work practice in India is to shut off power during line maintenance with a very small portion of the work being done on live lines," said Chitra Ranganathan, Altec Market Development Director, Asia Pacific. "India is seeing an increased demand for uninterrupted electric power supply for industrial, commercial, and residential consumers. This demand is driving electric utilities to embrace new technologies and work methodologies."
