Electrical Test Hang-off21-02-2012
Upon the completion of the endurance test with the temporary section of the cable hang-off system, the tested medium voltage cable has been brought back to the testing laboratory of the cable manufacturer.
Visual checking has been executed on the yarning, armour wires, bedding, single conductors and FO-element of the cable. In addition to the observed success during the endurance test, visual checking on the dissectioned cable has proved the temporary clamping section allowed no movement and did not cause an external damage to any elements of the cable.
Electrical tests have also been completed with success and it has been concluded that the temporary clamping did not cause any damage to the cable nor interfered with its functionality.
