Specialist Earth System Walton on Thames: Long Barn Substation

Client: SC Electrical Contractors Ltd

Orion LPS were tasked with safely installing a separate High Voltage and Low voltage earthing system for the UKPN HOT site sub stations that were being installed all in compliance with BSEN 50522 and BS 7430. The HV system consisted of a network of 120mm copper cables connected to 14.2mm earth rods to a depth of up to 4.8 meters in 8 locations, the system was then connected using purpose made compression clamps. For the LV system we used 25x3mm copper tapes connected to 14.2mm earth rods to a depth of up to 4.8 meters in 4 locations, the system was then connected again using purpose made compression clamps.

Installation

Throughout the installation and upon completion of each system accurate test measurements were carried out and recorded to ensure that the required earth resistance was achieved that would also maintain a safe working earth potential gradient.
