An Overview about Underground Cabling and Wiring Systems

May 27, 2020

Over the last couple of decades, the concept behind underground cabling and wiring systems has been continuously adopted by numerous countries. Undergrounding is often seen as a replacement for overhead cables in providing electrical power or telecommunications. It solves the problem of frequent outages that are caused by high wind thunderstorms or heavy snow or ice storms. With undergrounding, property owners can also expect improved aesthetic quality over their landscapes and properties thanks to the absence of overhead cables.

Why Do You Need an Earthing System in an Electrical Network?

February 21, 2020

Many elements go into creating an effective electrical network for both commercial and residential properties. One such element that is a necessity is an earthing system to ensure that this network is properly grounded. Through grounding or earthing an electrical system or network, you ensure that it transfers any immediate electricity discharge directly to a special pipe or plate to keep this powerful source of energy safe to use.

Avoid Excavation Mishaps: Hire Only VEDN Accredited Contractors

January 20, 2020

Excavation services, those that unearth long, narrow ground trenches, really should be conducted by VEDN accredited contractors. If the goal was to dig one deep hole, a soil opening that didn't hold a team of utility workers, then things would be considerably different. A fence support or lamp post or tree root system would sink delicately into the hole, and then there's some backfilling work to do. Job finished, everyone would pack up and head back to the work depot. Trenches are worksites, though, not empty holes.

The Importance of Having an Underground Asset Location Checklist Prior to an Excavation Project

January 9, 2020

When excavation projects need a healthy dose of operational discipline, they employ Underground Asset Location Checklists. Before a single tool is pulled out of a work van, this project aid is right there, on-hand to ensure a systematically run job. Granted, such assignment organizing aids might not benefit simpler work tasks, but then below ground services are rarely straightforward. Given that fact, underground assets need to be carefully tracked.
