Building a successful solution from the ground up
The body of knowledge leading to good installation outcomes for ACCC® customers is captured and frequently updated in the ACCC® Installation Guidelines. The guidelines are organized into topical chapters, and are available for download here. A review of the guidelines will be helpful to all who are responsible for installation activities.
Prior to the start of construction, our field support staff will provide specific tools and equipment lists. Then, we will review those lists with your key installation staff and contractors to ensure that proper equipment and tools are procured and allocated for your installation.
CTC Global provides installation training for all customers worldwide. ACCC® Installation Training℠ is delivered by CTC Certified Master Installers and includes all safety and procedural aspects that are unique to ACCC conductor and associated hardware. While we assume that the crews being trained are generally experienced linemen, safety basics are reviewed. The program begins with a classroom review of the important differences between ACCC and other conductors and how those drive the few but important changes in industry standard installation practices. The classroom session is followed by a hands-on demonstration of dead end and splice assembly. These two elements take about a day, depending on class size. The third element is on-the-job training, wherein the Master Installer / Instructor actually goes to the jobsite with his class for the first couple of sections or pulls. He will reinforce the classroom lessons and correct practices, is available to answer questions and advise on any special conditions, and to verify the effectiveness of the training. More details found here.
CTC Global also offers ACCC® On Site Service℠ (OSS℠), wherein a CTC Certified Master Installer assists with site supervision. The Master Installers are extremely experienced with tensioned overhead stringing in general and ACCC® in particular, and the OSS makes this expertise available to your crews and supervision to help insure a reliable and efficient installation outcome. Please find more OSS details here.
The Master Installer(s) that deliver the training and or OSS services remain available and in touch with the project supervision through energization. In addition, field support and expertise is always available throughout the entire project, or anytime. Give us a call (+1 949.428.8500) or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get right back to you!

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 refer to Chapter 9 of the Guidelines, or contact CTC Global for assistance.
