Caption: Electricity pylon maintenance. View of a technician working on the maintenance of a power line. The cable carrying the electricity (in background) is suspended from a large insulator (lower centre) on an arm of a pylon , on which the technician is sitting. Pylons hold cables which carry electricity from power stations to sub- stations in cities and towns. The equipment must be in a good condition or efficiency may be lost. Power lines require constant servicing to keep them working correctly. The insulators prevent any electricity flowing through the metal pylon, which would be dangerous.
