Monitoring levels of vibration across three large river spans on the National Grid network, Implementing a solution to manage the vibration.
The objectives of this project are to:

  • Monitor the oscillation of conductors across three large river crossings on the system

  • Analyse the results of monitoring and design a new system for damping these crossings

  • Implement the new design on one crossing

  • Support a capital scheme for the replacement of the other two crossings.
