As the name suggests, Scottish Power Energy Networks are one of the big players in electricity transmission around these parts. Yesterday, we had the opportunity to demonstrate how Limpet systems can add value to the teams of technicians that are maintaining the transmission network day in day out, both to make climbing up and down the masts/ pylons etc safer and easier, but also as a system for lifting and lowering tools and components, and as a rescue solution if required. It was a properly dreich day in Cumbernauld (the site of SPN's large training centre) but it gave a good opportunity to show off the waterproofing of the Limpet, which was attached to the corner of the training electricity pylon. Many thanks to the folks from Scottish Power who attended and cheerfully endured the soaking in order to witness the Limpet in action. We also got to see the Limpet being used in an unusual climb assist mode, as a leg up to Derek, the technician who rigged the pulley (see centre shot below).

Well done. The rescue drill is amazing. They can rescue quickly who's stuck at tranmission pylon.
