7.0 HEALTH AND SAFETY ARRANGEMENTS


The hazards associated with the Cable Pulling & Termination of
MV Cables have documented (Ref: Job Hazard analysis Doc. No.
HSE/RA/__. Control measures as identified in the documents
will be complied with the approved Project HSE Plan.
8.0 PROCEDURE
8.1 Preparation
8.1.1 Excavation

Permit to Work (PTW) shall be raised for the excavation clearly


mentioning the location of work, size of excavation and levels.

Excavations area shall be surveyed and marked to the lines and


levels as shown on the drawings.

The area of excavation will be cordoned off using safety devices.

Ensure the working area at any confined space is free from any
Hazardous Gas by proper Gas testing using the Gas testing
instrument.

8.1.2 Materials

Not necessary for the construction shall be removed carefully


and stored neatly for reinstating after the construction works.

The material received from the client shall be stored in


designated area of store.

Arrangements shall be made to protect against effects of


weather and environment.

8.2 Cable Pulling

Insulation resistance of the cables shall be checked before


laying cables.

After the test, the end of the cable shall be sealed to prevent
the ingress of moisture.

Location of the panels / equipment shall be identified.

Cables shall be lubricated if bends in conduits are encountered


in a run to facilitate drawing in.

Cables must not be bent to a radius of less than 12 times the


overall diameter of the cable.

Rollers must be used where cables are installed in an open


trench using a pulling rope and eye; cable rollers are to be used
at frequent intervals to support the cables and must never be
more than 3 meters apart.

The rollers are to be placed securely to prevent movement.

The pulling rope must be equipped with a swivel and be


attached to the cable by a stocking grip with pulling eye.

The cable drum intended for cable pulling shall be identified as


per that indicated in the drum schedule.

The cable drums shall be un-packed and placed on a cable


roller, as required.

Cable laying will generally start from one end of the route
length or at any suitable point, as necessary.

Depending on the weight and size of the drum, suitable size of


the cable rolling shaft (Spindle) shall be placed inside the
central axis of the drum.

Suitable jacks shall be placed firmly on the ground and jackedup to allow clearance from the ground depending on the size of
the cable drum.

The drum shall be lifted by required equipment and placed on


the jacks.

The cable drum will be correctly positioned and the direction of


cable pulling as indicated by arrow on the drum shall be
complied.

The cable shall be drawn into the trench smoothly with a


minimum of stops and at an average speed of between 9-12
meters per minute, to avoid irregular movement.

8.3 Cable Termination & Installation

Termination point inside the panels / equipment shall be


considered for suitable spare length to be left available during
pulling of cable termination.

After cutting the cable to the required length the termination


work will be conducted as per ADDC Standard.

Jointing and Termination will be carried out as per ADDC


standards. All jointing and termination work will be carried out
by trained technicians, experienced in such work for the
operating voltage concerned.

Proper crimping tools shall be used compression type lugs. All


cables are to be terminated used glands of proper type and size
as per area classification.

The gland shall be assembled strictly in accordance with


manufacturers instruction, particular attention being paid to
ensure good mechanical and electrical contact between parts
without excessive strain or distortion of cable.

The entire body of the cable must enter the gland. The cable
shall be on a straight axis from a point at least six diameter
before entering the gland. Seals shall be checked for correct
size at the point of application.

Unused cable entries shall be closed with plug suitable for the
degree of protection classification.

After completion of indoor and outdoor termination the cable is


ready for Testing.

8.4 Testing & Commissioning

The following calibrated testing instruments will be used:

1 KV / 5 KV IR Test Kit - 1 no.


Multi Meter - 1 no.
Continuity Tester - 1 no.
Continuity Tester - 1 no.
Torque wrench - 1 no.
VLF - Test Kit

Before starting the test, the corresponding Circuit Breakers at


both ends of the cables are racked out and earthed properly.

Test will be conducted at the MV panel end. The opposite end of


the cable termination will be secured & protected. Testing
engineer will be at the end where high voltage is applied and
another Engineer to monitor at the opposite end of the cable.

Insulation Resistance will be done first: (a) between termination


lugs; (b) Phase, Neutral and Earth termination lug; (c) conductor
to termination lug. This will be done one minute each at 5kV,
and the results are noted as per approved test report format.
Note: The cables and conductors must discharged
per test.

The continuity test and phase sequence tests would be carried


out and results would be recorded for records and future
reference.
