Skysok – Lightweight and easily adjustable, able to catch & hold heavy powerlines

Operating in the Overhead Powerline Industry, AMEC Foster Wheeler were devising a new solution to safely carry out overhead power line changes, upgrades and repairs, focusing specifically on locations where Power Lines cross roads, railways, rivers and other high risk obstacles. The specification for the project was to create an innovative solution that would replace the existing expensive and time consuming method of erecting huge scaffold towers & safety netting.  Harken Industrial was selected to work with AMEC to get SKYSOK off the ground.
