The Contact and Overhead Line Construction Section bundles the knowledge and interests of around 25 companies from the fields of contact and overhead line construction as well as the manufacture of overhead line material vis-à-vis politics, society and industry.

The topics come from the areas of overhead line construction (transmission and distribution networks, plant operators), overhead line construction and public procurement. Work under extra-high voltage and the power-electronic expansion of the European transmission and distribution network as well as the intensive cultivation of contacts with customers are the focus of the association's work. A constant topic is safety on construction sites. This includes the regular exchange of information on accidents, near-accidents, safety-relevant events and the relevant regulations.
