Some Comments via LinkedIn

Ahmed Gouda : Great job! But if i may ask, why you did not install the insulator first inside the GIS housing?

Andrew Brezovszky : Hi Ahmed, not sure about your question ... As far as I'm aware, there isn't another method for these GIS cable terminations. When we are actually plugging them in, we install the shield and connectors and that's how they are being raised into the chamber.

Chris Barker : Ahmed in answer to your question. Certain manufacturers have the insulator installed first then the cable termination is made and plugged into the insulator. Others you complete the termination and then plug into the switchgear. s

Ahmed Gouda : Yes, normally in the plug in type, the insulator is mounted first in the cable housing then the cable with the stress cone is plugged in. Otherwise if its a wet type termination ( insulator is filled with oil). 

Chris Barker : Some company's have a dry type which they still mount the insulator on the cable then into the switchgear.
