Good afternoon all

I have been tasked with organising a diversion of an HV cable at a hospital / secure unit. What I would be inteested in is if anyone has experience of such a shutdown, and if so do you have any tips to share / points to watch out for / experiences to relate?

I've got a good set of method statements on what you're looking to do.

Send me a PM and I can email them across. BS references are a bit out of date.... but the process of isolation, earthing, permit to dig, spiking of cable, diversion, jointing, removing earthing, pressure testing, earthing again and reinstatement remain the same.

A HV diversion is not the sort of job you want to even contemplate without sound HV experience.



If something goes wrong, there is potential to come to serious harm or even death.

You need a Senior Authorsied Person at the required voltage to organise this.
