HV cable installation & design

High voltage, HV cable installation & route design

Our cable engineers can undertake all aspects of HV cable installation & route design, from early planning and investigation to cable pulling calculations and project management of cable laying activities.

Our HV cable installation route planning service will enable selection of a cost effective route solution. We will undertake detailed analysis to identify risks identified and will design the route to mitigate risk within the project planning stage. We will provide a pre-tender route solution which thereby minimises change and associated impact on time, cost and quality.

Our early planning solutions include the following services designed to minimise project risk through:-

  • Carrying out trial hole investigations in ‘Areas of Engineering Difficulty’ and in utility congested areas to minimise aborted installations and subsequent financial variations and programme disruption
  • Co-ordinating wayleave and easement negotiations at the planning stage to anticipated associated risks to cost and programme
  • Third party liaison with Environment Agency, Local Authorities, Network Rail and others to obtain all necessary approvals prior to project tender issue.
  • Production of detailed HV cable installation and route planning reports with all information required to enable client planning and contractors to prepare competitive tender estimates.

Our engineering team have numerous years of experience working within all areas of the utility industry. Previous HV cable installation projects range from small fault repairs to a 17km HV cable replacement route, across varying installations through inner city, urban and rural landscapes, incorporating a wide range of ‘Areas of Engineering Difficulty’ (AED’s).

Our construction solutions include the following services designed to assist with smooth running of site works through:-

  • Monitoring of Signing, Lighting and Guarding
  • Pre-site surveys
  • Auditing excavations in the highway network
  • Monitoring reinstatements and compaction of back filled materials
  • Inspection of completed works
  • As-Built surveys of completed works
  • Scope management of consequential damage repair works
  • Highway asset condition audits

EDES clients within the utility sector include Electricity North West (ENW), Iberdrola (Scottish Power) and MSVE.
