The Structural Engineering Analysis Centre (SERC) has developed an indigenous expertise — Emergency Retrieval System (ERS) — for fast retrieval of energy transmission within the occasion of failure of transmission line towers.
The Chennai-based constituent laboratory of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Analysis has signed an settlement for licensing of the ERS expertise with Advait Infratech, Ahmedabad. The settlement was signed within the presence of Santosh Kapuria, Director, CSIR-SERC, Chennai and SK Ray Mohapatra, Chief Engineer (PSE & TD), Central Electrical energy Authority, New Delhi, mentioned a press launch from PIB.
ERS is a light-weight modular system that’s used as short-term assist construction to revive energy instantly after the collapse of transmission line towers throughout pure calamities corresponding to cyclone/earthquake, or man-made disruptions. It may be assembled rapidly on the catastrophe website for restoration of energy in 2-Three days, whereas the everlasting restoration might take a number of weeks. “This growth may be very important as failure of transmission strains severely affect lives of widespread individuals and causes big financial loss to the ability corporations,” the discharge added.
