Cable Distribution Services partnered with ICM Group to supply and install highly specialised high voltage cable to Paraburdoo to replace cable at site which had been supplied by another vendor. Due to the importance of the cable’s compliance, representatives from Cable Distribution Services and ICM Group accompanied end user engineers to the factory to undertake a Factory Acceptance Test and oversee all cable testing which included;
- hot set tests
- mechanical tests without aging
- DC resistance
- high voltage tests
- partial discharge
- spark testing
This mission critical cable was required on site within 10 weeks and Cable Distribution Services managed to deliver it in 9 weeks when other vendors had quoted a 12 week delivery schedule. Cable Distribution Services delivered the cable direct to site within the agreed lead time and the installation was completed by ICM Group without any delays or issues associated with the cable’s conformity.
