High-voltage line being installed

High-tension line being installedWeems Plantation NeighborhoodTallahassee, FL 32317Saturday, August 23, 2009This afternoon, I saw crew working on the installation of high-voltage transmission lines near the Weems Plantation neighborhood. Today’s work involved people pulling the physical cables that will eventually carry the current under high-voltage.A machine with several spools of cables was slowly unwinding as another machine pulled the cables from the other direction. The cables went through pulleys where the cables will finally be held by insulators.I had never seen this process before. So, I stopped at the location of the device and took some pictures. Here you can see the pictures of cables getting unwound and cables being drawn through the pulleys at top of the transmission lines.
