Project Details

Client : Transelect
Type : Upgrade Transformer Earth Grid and Current Injection Test
Date : 2015
Scope of project:
Supply and installation of earth grid for new upgraded transformer including:
  • 120mm2 bare c/u grading ring
  • 120mm2 green/yellow insulated connections
  • 4 x 5m-deep earth electrodes
Earthing Solutions used a concrete saw to cut along the existing service location to install the earth grid in the existing concrete structure. We undertook current injection testing and prepared a detailed report prior to the new transformer being energised.

Challenge: The work was carried out in the vicinity of an existing live substation requiring additional care to ensure on site safety.

Result: The project was successfully completed to the design requirements and the step-touch potential recommendations.
