Men on wire: Power workers walk in the clouds to repair lines

From the north of Zhejiang Province in eastern China to Fuzhou in the southeastern Fujian Province, there is a large uninhabited area of endless mountains, crisscrossed by ultra-high-voltage (UHV) transmission lines that can weigh more than 270 kilograms. After first entering operation in 2015, the North Zhejiang-Fuzhou UHV AC project underwent its first series of safety checks earlier this month. The power workers need to walk on wires no thicker than bottle caps with only a thin wire on either side to hold on to, with a deep valley directly below their feet. The breathtaking moment that saw them walk in the clouds was captured by CCTV, let’s take a look.
