Emergency Retrieval System (ERS)
Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) constituent laboratory Structural Engineering Research Centre (SERC) based in Chennai has signed an agreement for licensing of the ERS technology with Advait Infratech Ltd, Ahmedabad.
The ERS manufactured by AIL & CSIR-SERC will be the first indigenously developed ERS meeting International standards IEEE 1070.
Earlier ERS was imported from countries like Germany and Canada at a high very cost. The structure developed by CSIR-SERC will cost only 40% of such imported systems. It can be scaled up to carry power lines from 33 kV to 800 kV. It can be easily assembled, reused, transported, and stored at the site.
