November 2014 www.cimarronelectric.com New Line Would Stretch From Here To Niagara Falls, NY!


Everything built is immediately inspected upon completion. We pay 90% upon invoicing and the last 10% once the inspection is done.


The old line and poles are brittle and can break in removal. Sometimes because of this, nuisance outages occur during replacement. Ninety nine percent of all the work is done hot. Very seldom can we isolate and back feed the line that is be- ing replaced.


The difference between the old pole and the new replacement pole is like night and day. The old pole has rubber guts on the wires, the new pole is placed tight beside it, and the old will be removed.


The twelve hundred and forty nine mile rebuild has started. After six weeks of work, the project is off the ground. Over 20 contracting crews have relocated men and equipment to work on our line hardening project.


Cimarron’s own Ron Pennington, Rick Friez and Robert Cannon are directing the crews. Rob- ert has 7 crews around Fairview and Rick has 8 crews around Kingfi sher. Ron presently has 5 crews around Lacy and will have six more crews starting in the Dover area this month.


Reed Emerson, Sr. Vice President of Operations & Engineering, is happy that everything is going so smooth. “Our fi rst 50.2 mile contract was set to be built in 6 weeks. It was completed in 5!”, said Emerson.


There are approximately 125 more people, in addition to our own employees, that are just building line. Any tree trimmers needed are in addition to these crews.


Every mile of this line replacing and pole hard- ening project was driven out, surveyed and en- gineered (staked) in various stages. The projects are then broken up into individual contracts that are assigned to specifi c contractors. The total amount of line to be replaced in this project is 1249 miles. The goal is to have this project com- pleted by April 8, 2017.


In some instances, members have requested a pole be replaced or work to be done that falls outside of these individual contracts. Please un- derstand that these contractors are working on specifi c contracts. But if you have a dangerous pole or work that needs immediate attention, please call Cimarron instead of the contractors.
