Underground MV Cable Installation Best Practices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Underground cable is often referred as the backbone of a utilities distribution system. Cable failure can cause disruption in service leaving customers in the dark and causing system wide disturbances. A lot of time failures can be traced back to issues caused by improper cable installation methods.

From installing mule tape with a duct rodder to operating a 12,000lb pulling trailer, this presentation will review the different techniques for installing underground cable properly and safely. Every successful job starts with good planning and preparation. Starting with developing pulling calculations to duct proofing, we will review resources that can be utilized before cable pulling even begins. There are many tools out on the market, so choosing the proper solution for the job can be confusing. During the presentation we will review some of these options and discuss when each should be implemented on a jobsite. In addition to tools, there are installation recommendations available from other industry leaders like lube and cable manufactures.
We will take a look at these and discuss how they can be achieved using specialty equipment that is out on the market. Attendees will leave with a greater knowledge of underground cable installation practices that they can directly apply on the jobsite.
