Abstract: Improved technique for measuring of the geometric parameters of tower-base structures in the operating facilities of main oil and oil product pipelines is presented. It is noted that the testing of towers vertical deviations and roll is complicated by the fact that, depending on the structure of the support, the axis is either inaccessible for observation at supports with an annular circular cross-section, or should be built on the measurement results of visible structural elements of the lattice supports. For these conditions, methodological techniques that allow determining the position of the axis of the structure from indirect measurements are described. For main pipelines typical range of tower-base structures heights is 2090 m. For this heights the results of evaluating the optimal distance between the monitored tower support and the measuring device are presented. Measuring procedure for the height of lightning rods and the distance between lightning rods and protected objects is determined. Developed approaches make it possible to measure the height of lightning rods with an error of not more than 0.1 m and to control deviations from the vertical with an error of not more than 0.001 from the nominal value of the height on the controlled level. The following recommendations can be used in the inspection of tower and mast structures at pipeline transport facilities of any purpose.

Keywords: tower-base structures, geometrical parameters, accuracy of measurement, measurement technique.
