Receipt and Preservation


1
Ensure certified tools, lifting equipment are used
for unloading of Switchgears by trained and
competent personals. Avoid any sudden jerks
when moving.
2
Ensure completeness of supply and specification as
per packing list, BOQ, OEM manual & PO.
3
Check name plate data against data sheet.
4
Inspect all items of equipments as soon as possible
upon arrival at site to ascertain whether they have
been damaged in transit or whether any items are
missing. Particular attention should be paid to
bushings, meter and relays which are the items
most liable to damage.
5
If the Switchgear is to be stored for long duration,
it should be stored in the clean, dry, and airy
place.
6
Packing material such as wood, wool or straw
packed around insulation other than porcelain,
should be removed as they may absorb moisture.
Periodic inspection and vermin proofing is carried
out of such places.
Panel Foundation
Ensure foundation is ready and released by concerned
1
department.
