Power Cable Termination

  • Where cable conductors are to be fitted with cable lugs, these will be of the compression type secured by either manual or hydraulic powered crimping tools, appropriate to the size of conductor / cable lug being fitted.
  • No aluminum conductors will be used within any switchboard.
  • Where conductors are to be terminated into switchboards the following procedure will be followed: Cable sizes from 2.5 mm² cross section (inclusive) will be fitted with pin-type compression lugs, only if bolted connections are not practical.
  • Where conductors are to be terminated into switchboards the following procedure will be followed: Cable sizes greater than 10.0 mm² cross section will be fitted with compression – type lugs in conjunction with bolted terminals.
  • In all instances where compression type terminations are used they will be attached by using an manual / hydraulic crimping tools.
  • In cases where conductor / terminal shrouds are to be used and where terminals have insulating barriers fixed over them, inspection will be carried out to ensure these have been correctly installed.
  • Cable segregation will be adhered to throughout the installation.
  • All outgoing circuits will be colour coded according to the phasing.
  • Shorting links for current transformers within switchgear equipment will be provided and used according to the status of equipment. When the shorting links are not in use, they will be fixed securely adjacent to the relevant terminals of the current transformer (CT) circuit.
  • Where status indicator lamps are fitted these will be inspected for correct mode of operation and colour coding.
  • Where cables are required to enter the manufacturer’s enclosure, a hole will be drilled using a proprietary hole saw. The removable gland plates will be removed for drilling and refitted.  Where removable gland plates are not provided the enclosure will be drilled with extreme care to prevent the internal components being contaminated with dirt etc.  The internal components will be covered with plastic sheets, which will be attached to the interior casings of the switchgear equipment with adhesive tape to prevent entry of foreign matter.  The cut edges of the enclosure will be de-burred of any remaining metal work and treated with paint to prevent corrosion.  Prior to energizing distribution boards and switchboard and prior to the substantial completion of works their interior will be vacuum cleaned to ensure the removal of waste, dirt etc.
  • All auxiliary circuits will be installed using PVC insulated copper cables.
  • Where conductors are connected to Klippon type terminal. Connections the correct size of screwdriver will be used to prevent damage to the terminals and terminal insulators.  After termination has been completed it will be confirmed that the installation of end sections, partitions, brackets, cross connections plugs, jumper bars, warning labels, plastic screws, marking tags etc. have been correctly fitted.
  • Only one cable will be connected to each terminal. Where more than one cable of the same potential requires terminating together than adjacent separate terminals will be used for each cable, with a shorting bar or cross connection plug linking the two terminals.
  • Terminal blocks for the live conductors will be covered with an appropriate label and separated from other terminal blocks by partitions.
  • Where wiring is not enclosed in plastic slotted trunkings en-route for final connections to MCB’s etc. they will be installed neatly and orderly and be retained by using nylon type straps.
  • Field test to be witnessed and approved by the Consultants prior to energizing the panels. Test reports will be submitted.
  • Check earthing to be as per the approved drawings, the exact route to be coordinated at site.

Pre Commissioning

When the installation reaches the pre-commissioning test stage the Sub-station / HT Room / LT Room / Electrical Room / Plant Room will be made secure and access will be limited to Authorized personnel only. At this stage as “Permit to work” system and a key issue system will be operated and come under the jurisdiction of nominated personnel.  Access for all contractor required to carry out in the secured areas will be controlled by nominated personnel.

Before energizing any part of the electrical distribution system the testing results should be acceptable , all terminals are checked and secured, all covers and safety shields are in place.  All section personnel will be informed and relevant “Supply Present” indication notices are displayed in both English and Arabic.

The Supervisor in charge and the QC Inspector will monitor the activities to ensure that all components indicated on the approved construction drawings have been installed and that the installation complies with the contract requirements and it will be verified that the completed installation complies with the specification.
