Recently, Baycoast was faced with a level 2 electrical challenge on its latest project. Baycoast was recently asked to replace a rotted electrical pole identified by Essential Energy. Our team of Baycoast professionals successfully completed the task at hand, ensuring the safety of everyone in the Batemans Bay area.

The job was a tough one and the pole wasn’t keen to leave the ground! Thankfully our skilled team was able to remove it safely and replace it with a brand spanking new pole. See the before and after photos below.

Batemans Bay is a coastal town and inlet on the Tasman Sea, located in southeastern New South Wales, Australia. It is an estuary of the Clyde River that measures six by eight kilometers.   A region named by Captain James Cook in 1770, Batemans Bay is home to beautiful beaches, fresh seafood, and waterfront activities.

Corrosion of Electrical Poles

Metallic electrical poles, such as those made of steel or aluminum, do not rot in the traditional sense as they are not made of organic materials. However, they can still corrode and deteriorate over time due to exposure to moisture, chemicals, and other environmental factors.

Corrosion of metal electrical poles can occur due to:

Moisture: Moisture can cause metal to corrode and weaken, especially in the presence of salts and other chemicals.

Environmental factors: Exposure to harsh weather conditions, salt spray, and air pollutants can accelerate the rate of corrosion.

Poor installation: Improper installation can result in trapped moisture and hasten the corrosion process.

Regular maintenance and inspections can help prevent corrosion and prolong the life of metallic electrical poles.
