High voltage transmission lines

HQ Engineering Italia has recently acquired the international skills and expertise of the company Fast Srl (former Old Towers) concerning the design of high voltage transmission lines. Our Power Lines division is able to develop complete projects for the construction and the start up of new transmission lines, providing a high-level performance, analysis of Tender specifications in order to guarantee an important saving on the costs of steel lattice towers and compliance with the delivery terms.
In the structural design of towers for high voltage transmission lines HQ Engineering Italia offers support from the analysis and interpretation of the Tender specifications until the assistance in Tower Test Station.
HQ Engineering Italia with its specialized Engineers can solve the various problems of any kind of Technical Specification.
We are able to provide a preliminary design for towers and foundations of highest quality, ensuring the stage of detailed design with the support of experienced drafters, in order to reduce the costs of construction/erection of the towers.
Our team is completed by specialists able to develop geological surveys and tests and topographic analysis. We also provide study for an optimized tower spotting complete with stringing tables.
In order to be able to guarantee a quality process in all stages of the design, the company adopted a quality system obtaining the certification, from the Interteck standard, that complies with the UNI EN ISO 9001 certification. HQ Engineering Italia is heavily focused on Health and safety from the preliminary stage of the design and from 2011 HQ Engineering Italia has been awarded certification for OHSAS 18001(Occupational Health & Safety Assessment Series).
