Project Skills Solutions has years of experience on electrical and cabling projects. Our clients, the owners of a warehouse, were victim to major copper power cable theft.
Electrical Cabling Installation – The Project
The client faced the situation of the main site distribution power cables 4 core 300mm SWA having been stolen by thieves. The cabling had basically been ripped out using vehicles. This had also resulted in damage to electrical distribution panels, cable ducts and buildings. The electrical cables had to be replaced quickly to get power back to the warehouse. The cable duct also had been damaged which caused a ducting to collapse. The duct had to be repaired by excavation and installation of new 100mm duct before the new cabling could be installed.
Electrical Cabling installation Essex – The Solution
The client required a total solution to the the situation that he had unexpectedly found himself. So we took care of the civil engineering required to repair the collapsed duct. Once repaired we could begin the installation of new power cables from the substation to the warehouse. We rod and roped to ensure the duct is clear so we can begin electrical cabling installation. Once the rope was attached to the cable via a cable sock our engineers pulled the cable through using a powered winch. The new cables to be installed were 4 off 4 core 300mm SWA cables and with 4 runs of 150mm earth. These varied in length from 80m to 145m, and therefore our engineers had a challenge even using a winch.
Once the electrical cable had been installed it had to be terminated on both ends, again due to the size of the cable we had to use specialist equipment. Using a hydraulic power crimp, our engineers could then connect the cable. Once connected the cable was fully tested, and results provided to the client.
