Ensto has developed connectors for medium voltage live line work in co-operation with electricity power companies. In the design process, we have used our wide experience in low voltage live line work. The used tools are chosen according to suitable work methods.
In Finland, the only approved work method is the so-called insulation rod method. When using insulation rods, work can be done from a safe distance. The general requirements for live line work are approved work instructions and their careful follow-up. All equipment and supplies must be electronically and mechanically approved.
One of our main suppliers is Hastings from USA with which we have had good experiences for over a decade.
