Stockholding of emergency electricity pylons

The largest electricity supply companies have agreed to support each other in the event of a crisis under the ‘Universaltragwerke für die Stromverteilung’ agreement (Universal support structures for electricity distribution). In order to ensure the distribution of electricity, they undertake to keep one emergency pylon in stock and to rent it out to each other in times of crisis. In the event that a regular structure fails, the universal support structure is used as a temporary solution. This allows the disconnected power line to be quickly put back into operation.
