AC Electric’s Using Helicopters for Upcoming Pole Replacement Project

such as “hot spots” where equipment could be heating up and cause future issues. 

By Press Release

MAYS LANDING – Atlantic City Electric is currently working on the Middle Township to Wildwood Reliability Project and will begin using helicopters to remove existing wooden poles and towers and place new state-of-the-art steel poles, which can withstand winds of up to 120 mph. 
According to a release, work will start in November and occur through mid-December, weather permitting. The helicopters will fly from a staging area, located on Route 47, in Middle Township, and travel to and from Grassy Sound Island and Grassy Sound Channel, between Middle Township and West Wildwood. The use of helicopters is an innovative and environmentally conscious way to build energy infrastructure in sensitive habitats. 
This project will upgrade four miles of critical transmission line between Middle Township and the Wildwoods, strengthening the local energy infrastructure against more extreme weather and improve reliability for more than 24,000 customers.
