“I have attached some photos that were taken today of the Kaddas pin and insulator covers, these were installed about four years ago for trial. I do not see any obvious signs of tracking or deterioration. More importantly, they are still in the air. This is one of our worst case areas for weather, including wind and ice loading, as well as heat.”

“At Kodiak Electric Association, Inc we experience an influx of hundreds of bald eagles in the winter along the fish processing area of Kodiak. Being located on an island surrounded by the Pacific Ocean we receive the full force of Pacific storms with high winds, rain, snow, and significant salt contamination. All of which makes for a challenging environment to operate an electrical distribution system and provide some means of protecting the bald eagles.
We have successfully piloted Kaddas conductors and insulator cover ups the past year or so with good success.”

“We are pleased with the Kaddas product and the value it provides the members of our cooperative.”
