High Voltage in the News

Parts were recently stolen from towers carrying 115kV wires. The thieves took hundreds of steel struts, nuts and bolts from three 115kV high voltage towers in Thailand. The 130 foot high towers leaned much more than normal during a windy evening, causing an investigation. The parts were probably taken in order to sell them as scrap metal.

Imagine what would have happened if the towers fell down!
