Photos below are from an out of hours maintenance visit by Joe. For this particular maintenance the scope of works included a fully intrusive overhaul of a 11kV South Wales switchgear board consisting of South Wales switchgear C4X OCB's, replacement of each breakers electrical insulating oil, electromechanical protection relay testing and a transfer of operational control document. 

This allowed Joe and his team to control an isolated part of the customers network safely for the duration of the works.
