Energized Services Group

PAR, through Quanta Services, holds exclusive rights to the patented and innovative LineMaster™ Robotic Arm. Quanta’s Energized Services Division trains and certifies PAR crews to perform barehand live line work.

Our technological advances allow us to quickly create safe work zones and significantly increase production.

The innovative LineMaster™ Robotic Arm is a device that allows crews to safely perform energized work that previously would have been considered impractical due to associated costs of service disruption. Because the LineMaster™ quickly creates a safe work zone, we also have achieved significant increases in production compared to traditional energized work methods. PAR Energized Services crews also have extensive experience in barehand and hotstick techniques.
