As the public perception shifts from the development center to the people and the environment, interest in the environmental impact of electric power facilities has heightened, and the existing transmission tower is being widely perceived as an evasive facility that damages the landscape and lowers the local value.
This International Transmission Tower Design Awards is hosted by KEPCO, which selected as the 'No.1 World Power Company in 2016' by Forbes magazine. It is one of Korea's leading electric power companies in Korea. We will promote the domestic and foreign development and installation cases as well as alleviate the negative perception about transmission towers by promoting and promoting them.
