A before and after photograph of emergency HV cabling works undertaken by SPEC Ltd - 3000m of 630sqmm single core copper 11kV aluminium wire armour BS7835 CU/XLPE/CTS/LSZH/AWA/LSZH removed and replaced after the earthing arrangement was found to be incorrect and the under armour rings not installed.

Raychem EPKT 17E1XI cable terminations used at both ends - the turbine ends burnt out whilst running at 23.5MW output. A great effort from the SPEC Cabling Division followed by a fantastic finale by some of SPEC's outstanding HV Cable Jointers and Testers. Special credit to Benn Wood (SPEC 33kV Jointer).

SPEC Ltd has been providing high voltage network power and cable jointing solutions to a wide range of clients for over 10 years.
