TenneT is a leading European electricity Transmission System Operator (TSO) in the Netherlands and Germany, supplying electricity to 41 million end users and transmitting electricity across the high-voltage grid. In 2000, Arbo Union (Dutch authority for health and safety) identified that safety could be improved with better climbing techniques on high voltage masts. Arbo Union recommended MSA's Latchways range as the safest system. Following this guidance in 2001, electricity companies including TenneT compared MSA with other cable/rail systems to find the best solutions for their applications.
