Advanced Cabling Technologies Programme wrapper for a discrete
programme of related IFI cabling projects with a de minimus expenditure level
of £40k per annum. An example project being developed under this
programme is a concept to reduce excavation and reinstatement costs and
improve reliability of 11kV and 33kV jointing systems.
The programme addresses cabling technologies and associated issues. The
example project considers the following:
- Given the extensive annual cable jointing activity this project seeks to
realise savings on ever-increasing excavation and reinstatement costs as
well as improving the reliability of cable joints
- Enhanced reliability will be achieved by designing out failure mechanisms
and reducing the prospect of installation error.
