Hi
i ve been asked to go and check a 3-phase cut-out in a park.
The 3-phase cut-out(head) is in the middle of a park in a steel box(like a small telephone box). I checked all phases and they are dead.
They have new boxes now installed in the park and they want to remove this old one. They want to cut the cable and remove the box.
They believe that this head is fed from a BD in a building/shed in the park which we did have access yet.
I believe that this head is property of the Western power and they have to deal with it. I dont think you can have a head as a part of a privite installation and fed from a DB.

Regards

Paul

The cable comes underground.
The outsheath is the classic supplier cable, bitumen/cloth finishing, 40-50mm thick. I ll say 4-core 35mm2.

I'd chuck it at the utility (WPD) given the cable type etc.

That said, we've used cut-outs as demarcation lots of times on farm networks so it could be private and just old. sounds like PILCSWA or similar if it's cloth covered.

Depending on the area, it could be PILCSWA or PILCSTA construction. As others have said, you should refer it to the DNO first - Western Power in your case. It is possible that the supply is for public lighting. In this case, it may be charged based on the number of lamps connected, rather than being a metered supply. The DNO may also have control gear that only energises it at certain times of the day.

Regards,

Alan.
