RJ Power Rail Limited was asked to complete a rare joint for their project at Ilford Depot.
The existing cable (25kV) was installed in 1959 and is a Mass Impregnated Non Draining cable. RJ Power Rail was asked to joint this to a modern XLPE cable, using a unique joint we have had commissioned by Tyco in Germany.
Our logistics team purchased and shipped the joint liaising closely with Tyco, to deliver this specialist joint. A high risk project with high reward – and just the type of project that RJ Power Rail’s experienced electrical team thrive upon.
The good news is that the joint has arrived and the rail team are installing it tomorrow!
