Hello.

What do you call "transmission tower" in Italian?

here is a definition: "a tower like structure used to support high voltage electricity cables"

sentence: ČEZ company owns hundreds of transmission towers to supports its cables that distribute electricity in our country.

WRD has an entry for that but that is for a radio: transmission tower - Dizionario inglese-italiano WordReference

suggestion: torre di trasmissione

Thank you.

If you are speaking of a power mast or pylon, then the Italian word is traliccio. (http://www.wordreference.com/enit/pylon).
