Project summary
Rerouting and replacing existing oil pressure cables to two new switching stations.

Execution period
June 2014

Located at an industrial production location, oil-filled 'COQ' switching installations that had served for over fifty years neared the end of their lifecycle and were to be replaced. As oil pressure cables are easily damaged, extracting and rerouting them is a high-precision job. Each one of the cable connections was a direct supply system for the on-site factory. To limit the customer's downtime to an absolut minimum, a highly accurate coordination and a strict planning were of of the utmost importance.
