The first step in refurbishing a pole is it cleaning and its decontamination. Since many generators were manufactured with asbestos-based insulation, it is imperative to get rid of any asbestos in the poles. RPR Hydro carries out these operations according to proven methods, and in accordance with laws and regulations. Unless proven otherwise, all repaired poles at RPR Hydro are treated as containing asbestos. Strict control procedures, adequate protective equipment, and regular sampling of the work environment allow us to protect the health and safety of our employees.
