Upgrading the earthing for the transformer involved:
- Supplying and installing 2 x 4.8m electrodes
- Installing CW 70mm2 cable for termination to low voltage transformer switchgear
- Supplying and installing 2 heavy duty electrode pits including testing and providing stainless steel labels
The earthing upgrade was carried out adjacent to the electrified rail corridor. Specialist compact drilling equipment was required to maintain safe distances from the live track. Earthing Solutions’ RISI-trained staff who are authorised to work within the rail corridor, together with a protection officer undertook the safe upgrade of the earthing for the low voltage transformer.
The project was completed safely and according to the client’s requirements.
