In the field of power and electrical engineering, when the power supply increases, so do the risks – both to the individuals carrying out the work and to the equipment itself. Therefore, safety is always the priority for any electrical switchgear manufacturer. Additionally, when the occupational hazards are unavoidably heightened by higher voltage requirements, safety systems must be enhanced and adhered to accordingly, right from the planning, testing, and installation of electrical switchgear and transformer equipment, through to its operation and maintenance.
Moreover, the challenge of coordinating site access and timings can be especially heightened during the manufacture of higher voltage electric switchgear projects. However, it is inevitable that networks will be disrupted to connect into the system, even if conducting only routine safety and efficiency testing of the equipment.
