Cable Ploughing and
PJ Hirons laying interconnecting cables between Wind Turbines bases in South Wales. The plant on site included our Fockersperger Spider Plough FSP 18 and FWF 70 Winch. The cables are 3 x 500mm² or 3 x 600mm² depending on the location of the substation.
The cables were laid at 1200mm deep and are surrounded in sand using our McCusker Sand cart ST1200. Cable warning tapes or tiles can be laid on the top of the sand, with 2 marker tapes laid at 400mm below ground level. You can see the green/yellow marker tapes just behind the sand hoper. An earthing cable is also being laid with the cables, the drum is on the front of the spider.
