RS Announces Transmission Order to Guatemala

RS Technologies Inc. has received an order for its RStandard poles from Transportista Electrica Centroamericana, S.A., a subsidiary of Empresa Eléctrica de Guatemala.

The order from TRELEC is for approximately 60 poles ranging in height from 18 to 27 meters, all of which are expected to ship in six 40-ft intermodal shipping containers. This is RS's second order from TRELEC in 2011, following an initial pilot order shipped in the first quarter.

"The RStandard poles will be used by TRELEC to replace concrete poles carrying existing 69-kV lines in our grid. In particular, the composite poles will be installed in locations where access is difficult," stated Manuel Eduardo Arita, manager with TRELEC.
