Project: #3424
 

Objectives

It is now proposed to update Report 3415 to include a technology review from a subject matterindustry expert on technologies and tests that are available or show promise to be used tocheck/scan energized cables to better understand if there is short-term risk of failure. Suchrecommended tests, readings or scans would be suitable to be carried out without the need to enterconfined spaces that include vaults/manholes/tunnels to provide a higher level of assurances ofcable condition in order to reduce risk of injury from cables failing while workers are performingmaintenance and inspection services within these confined spaces. Technologies review shouldinclude but not be limited to Infrared Scanning, PD monitoring, On Line DTS readings.
