BOLD wins International
Tower Design Award from CIGRE-KEPCO

BOLD® (Breakthrough Overhead Line Design) has earned another prestigious award, the grand prize in the “International Tower Design Award” from CIGRE/KEPCO.

The BOLD® Transmission app lets you put a virtual BOLD structure in your backyard, along an existing right of way, in a conference room… anywhere you’d like.


By offering reduced structure heights, greater efficiency and more capacity, BOLD technology improves views, requires less foundation and structure materials, and can move more power through existing rights of way. In addition, the curved arm reduces negative interactions with birds.
