That's very cool.

From their website:

Bang! Connecting conductors with an implosion
Perhaps the most surprising step in the stringing process is shown in the video below.

Implosive jointing is a method — used throughout the Northwest Transmission Line — to join two ends of a conductor. To splice the two ends together, an explosive sleeve is placed over the ends of two separate lengths of conductor, and the charge is detonated. The implosion compresses the sleeve onto each end of the conductor and forms a permanent connection between them.

On NTL, the majority of these implosion joints spliced one conductor end to another mid-span between towers. But dead-end splices, which use implosions to splice conductor at a tower, were used extensively where towers were placed on an angle to allow for a significant turn in the transmission line.

The video below shows six simultaneous detonations to complete a dead-end splice.
