RS Technologies has started shipment of its RStandard transmission poles to China for testing and approval.

The poles will be used by Jiangsu Far-East Group Co., Ltd. and the Shenzhen Chamber of Commerce for Electric Power Service to complete the testing and product approvals for the Chinese power grid.

The process includes structural testing at the SG Electric Power Construction Research Institute and electrical testing at the Wuhan High Voltage Research Institute. RStandard poles will then be installed in China’s live grid for approval.

“”The recently announced commissioning of our two Calgary production cells was a critical step in the production of transmission poles over 32 metres (105 feet) needed for China.”” said Greg Pendura, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of RS. “”The installation of our RStandard poles in the Chinese grid in June will mark two significant milestones: the first composite transmission poles in China and the first delivery of 41 metre (135 foot) transmission poles in a 12 metre (40 foot) ocean container.””
