Building a successful solution from the ground up
CTC Global provides installation support and training for all customers worldwide. This includes all safety and procedural aspects that are unique to the ACCC® conductor and associated hardware. While we assume that the crews being trained are generally experienced linemen, safety basics are reviewed. Dead-end and splice assembly installation are covered at length, along with proper installation techniques. All members of the training program who subsequently complete the installation become certified by CTC Global Corporation and will be awarded a Training Certificate.
Prior to the start of construction, our field support staff conducts a site evaluation and meets with your key installation staff members and contractors to ensure that proper equipment and tools are selected for each project. Depending upon the type of project, line voltage, conductor size, terrain and other environmental conditions, CTC Global’s field support staff can provide knowledgeable recommendations to help ensure a trouble-free installation.

In addition to an equipment and ancillary hardware review, our field support staff will discuss proper stringing techniques and safe installation procedures. Training for the correct installation of the ACCC conductor’s specialized dead end and splice assemblies is also provided before the installation process begins.
Field training usually takes place in two parts: The first part of the training includes a presentation and discussion in a conference environment so that procedures can be reviewed and discussed. The second part of the training includes a field exercise to practice correct hardware installation.
In addition to installation training that is provided a few weeks before a project begins, a pre-construction meeting also takes place just prior to the start of the installation to review the procedures, discuss any open issues and provide additional training for any crew members that were not involved in earlier meetings. Field support remains available throughout the entire project.
Help making the best selections
Our specialized team will talk through your project at length, covering all the details and possibilities with you. Then they’ll provide you with an in-depth recommendation that will put the most appropriate version of our ACCC conductor to work for you.
Supported by Quanta Energized Services (QES), a number of ACCC reconductoring projects have been successfully completed without interrupting power service. Please contact CTC Global for more information.
Maintenance and Repair
ACCC conductor is essentially maintenance free. However, should damage occur as a result of flying debris or downed structures, conventional methods can be used to repair damaged strands or replace conductor sections. Depending upon the level of damage, CTC offers various recommendations. Please contact CTC for assistance.
