The EDS-ENGINEERING team has begun works on the second stage of the cable lines installation for Syvash wind power plant in Kherson oblast.

So far the geodesic lay-out of line track of the 2nd stage has been completed.

Since these works involved the risk to encounter a mine or a shell since the Second World War, the work was carried out with the help of sappers.

Now at the site are carried out the trenches excavation for laying cable, which was previously tested by specialists from the electrotechnical laboratory of EDS. In areas with elevated groundwater levels, the cable will be laid in pipes. All works on the site are carried out using the necessary measures to prevent COVID-19 infection of workers, as well as in compliance with occupational health standards in accordance with the requirements of international labor protection standards.

Recall that the full range of cable lines installation work for the future WPP is carried out under the agreement with the Chinese PowerChina, which acts as the general contractor for the project. We are talking about more than 150 km of cable routes, more than 500 km of cable made of cross-linked polyethylene, as well as more than 170 km of fiber optic communication lines with a high degree of protection. The future wind farm is a joint project of the Norwegian developer NBT AS and the French holding Total Eren.
