CABLES AND ACCESSORIES

Installation Requirements for LV Cables in SS Buildings

Pulling-in of cables shall not commence until ADWEA/ADDC/AADC has inspected and
approved the depth of the trench.
After the cables have been laid and provided that their spacing has been approved by
ADWEA/ADDC/AADC, they shall be covered up to the concrete tiles with an additional
layer of approved bedding material (e.g. natural and properly riddled sand, or weak mix
concrete, where the measured natural soil resistivity exceeds the value of 1200C cm/W) well
compacted over and around the cables.
Cables shall be laid directly from the drums into the trenches and special rollers placed at
close intervals (maximum 2 meters) shall be employed for supporting the cables while
pulling and laying them. Rollers used during the laying of cables shall have no sharp
projecting parts likely to damage the cables.
Until all the cables in the trench have been covered with their protection tiles as described
below, no sharp tools such as spades, pick-axes or fencing stakes shall be used in the trench
or shall be placed in such a position that they may fall into the trench.
Protective cable cover tiles shall be carefully centered over the cables as per the enclosed
drawings. These tiles shall be closely interlocked with the adjacent ones throughout the cable
circuits.
Topographic survey applying Global Position System (GPS) of the cables immediately after
laying and before covering them shall be made.
GIS coordinates for all joint locations shall be provided in the As-Built drawings.
After the cables have been laid and covered, the required tests after installation shall be
performed.
In the case the Contractor fail to backfill the trenches in the manner stated above, a cost of
equal to 60% (sixty percent) of the trenching will be deducted from the invoice without
referring to the Contractor. Similarly if the Contractor fails to prepare trenches of depth as
per specification, a cost proportional to the short fall in trench depth will be deducted from
the invoiced amount without referring to him.

4.14.4 Cable Cover Tiles


For technical details of Cable cover Tiles, reference shall be made to Standard Technical
Specification, Part:
¾ S-AAA-CIVIL-CAB - Civil Works for Underground Cables

4.14.5 Cable Route Marking


Cable markers of an approved type shall be provided along each route of buried cables, to be
erected after the reinstatement has been carried out.
