Several Michels crew members work together to unravel power cable

Post Rock to Spearville OPGW

Michels Power, Inc. replaced an existing shield wire with new optical fiber composite overhead ground wire (OPGW) wire on two separate 88- and 89-mile lane segments. Work totaled about 180 miles between the two segments in rural west/central Kansas.

Most of the aerial work needed completion via helicopter. The project traveled over several railroad and interstate crossings, requiring coordination between crews and the public.
