NI Wood Pole Refurb

This contract involves new build 11/33kV Overhead Line works at Tobermore, NI for our client NIE.

Challenges
NIE Approved GTS Staff are involved in taking any necessary Switching permits for works to proceed near Substations.

This is a new line built under a current Planning Permission so several requirements/conditions have to be observed in relation to Wildlife and Habitats.

Result
The 33kV Design is based on 50 Single and Duplicate pole sets , with stays installed at all angle structures. The conductor is 3 x 200mm² Aluminium which is bound in to Porcelain insulators on crossarms.

The existing 11kV Network is being diverted near Draperstown to accommodate the new line route and 7 new poles sets are required.
