Sealing Substation Cables - 33kV Single Core Trefoil & Multiple LV Power Using Filoform FiloSeal+HD Cable Duct Seals

Project: Cable Duct Sealing

Application: Prevent water ingress and gas migration into a 33kV substation through LV-HV cable ducts using Filoform FiloSeal+HD Reenterable LV HV Power Cable Duct Seal System - the sequence of images show the installation of the cable duct seal system into ducts providing underground cable protection to 33kV single core cables (trefoil formation) and multiple LV armoured power cables.

The cables are carefully seperated using the Filoform FiloSeal+HD hexagonal tubes which are being separated and supported by the hexagonal tubes - note the central positioning of the hexagonal tubes to establish the required cable separation and allow maximum flow of the duct sealant into the trefoil cable formation.

The 33kV substation is located on a private network and not owned by ENW.

Installed By: ENW Electricity North West   ENW

Electricity North West is a UK electricity distribution network operator (DNO), responsible for the administration and maintenance of the network that distributes electricity via underground cables and overhead lines throughout the North West of England. 

Electricity services provided by ENW include substation civil work, cable laying, cable jointing and switchgear erection, testing and commissioning – installation of new and refurbished transformers (oil cooled or air cooled).
