Mandate
Contract inspection for the years 2013 and 2014 2100 manholes and processing rooms for the entire territory of the province of Quebec.

As part of its annual inspection and maintenance program of its extensive network of conduits and manholes, Hydro-Québec has issued a public tender won by Infrastructel. This contract included the inspection of 1100 manholes per year for the years 2013 and 2014.

These inspections were carried out between April and December for two years. Infrastructel also conducted thermographic inspections and partial discharges for over 400 manholes. These tests were necessary to ensure the health and safety of resources that enter these confined spaces where there is the presence of low and medium voltage.

Infrastructel completed the delivery of all structures to be inspected within the time specified by the customer and the reports that were provided were of very high quality.
