How are transmission towers built?
Structure Construction Structures are assembled in sections near the new tower location and a crane is used to lift the sections into place. Crews then bolt the sections together. TSPs are either completely assembled near the tower location and then erected at once, or are assembled in sections.
Why Do transmission towers have different designs?
Different shapes of transmission towers are typical for different countries. The shape also depends on voltage and number of circuits.

How towers are erected?
Towers shall be erected by piecemeal method on the foundations not less than 14 days after concreting and after such time that the concrete has acquired its full strength. The towers shall be erected in the best workman like manner and its members shall not be strained.
What is the most common type of transmission tower?
Waist-type tower This is the most common type of transmission tower. It’s used for voltages ranging from 110 to 735 kV. Because they’re easily assembled, these towers are suitable for power lines that cross very uneven terrain.
