The design of a new heavy duty 132kV wood pole overhead line specification, incorporating an underslung optical path ground wire (OPGW) for counteracting the rise of earth potential issues and for communications purposes.
This is a project initiated to combat issues raised for the connection of renewable generation in Wales (SPM network). Following the development of a specification, this project aims to construct a trial section of the line to identify associated construction or maintenance difficulties.
