The widths of tree clearance to be adopted for lines of various voltages are as
detailed below:
Page | 29
a) 11 KV LINE
All growth within 6.096 M (20 ft) from the center line of support and all trees
which may fall and foul the line.
The Contractor shall take all possible steps to see that standing crops, etc.
are not damaged while attending to tree cutting. When such damage is
inevitable the compensation will be borne by the APDCL (UAR) provided the
damage is with the prior concurrence of the Engineer. The Contractor shall
bear the compensation for damage caused by the gangs without prior
concurrence of the Engineer concerned.
No trees shall be cut until the APDCL (UAR) has made necessary
arrangement with the authorities concerned and permission is given to the
Contractor to fell such trees. The contractor shall arrange to remove the
obstacles as soon as possible.
At such times, when it may not possible for APDCL(UAR) to arrange right-ofway for excavation of pole pits or erecting the poles of stringing the line, then
at all such times, the contractor shall shift his gangs to other areas. The rates
quoted shall cover all such contingencies and no extra payments shall be
claimed for such contingencies.
3.0 EXCAVATION OF POLE PITS, STAY PITS AND D.P. PITS
After the final survey of the line and after marking the pole locations
with pegs, excavation work has to be commenced in accordance to the
approved route map. Excavation is generally done by pick axes, crow Vbars and showers although sometimes earth augers are used. Excavation
of pole pits in very hard or rocky soil or in rock beds, may involve blasting
with suitable explosives. The pits for the supports are excavated in the
direction of the line as this will facilitate the erection of support are
excavated in the direction of the line as this will facilitate the erection of
support, in addition to giving greater lateral stability, the depth of the
foundation to be excavated for poles shall be in accordance with relevant
sketch for the erection of pole or stay of D.P. etc.
3.01
4.0 ERECTION OF SUPPORTS
After the excavation of pits is completed the supports to be erected may be
brought to the pits location. Then the pole may be erected inside the pit. Wooden
support may be utilized to facilitate lifting of the pole at the pit locations.
Before the pole is put into pit, RCC padding may be laid below the pole to
increase the surface contact between the pole and the soil. The padding will
distribute the weight of the pole uniformly on the soil.
Having lifted the pole, the same should be kept in a vertical position with the help
of manila rope of 25 mm dia. using the rope as a temporary anchor.
As the poles are being erected say from the pole already erected to the next
location where the pole is being erected, the alignment of the poles are to be
Page | 30
checked and set right by visual check. The verticality‟s of the poles are to be
checked with a spirit level on both transverse and longitudinal directions.
Having satisfied that the verticality and alignment are all right, earth filling or
concreting is to be done.
In swampy and special locations, however, before earth filing, the poles are to be
concreted up to ground level of the pit.
After the poles have been set the temporary anchors are to be removed. The
supports shall be buried to a depth as per sketch enclosed.
5.0
ERECTION OF D.P. STRUCTURES FOR ANGLE LOCATIONS (FOR 11 KV
LINES):
Generally, for angles of deviation more than 20° double pole structures of
spacing 1.2 mts (4.0 ft) may be erected. The pits are to be excavated as per
bisection of the angle of deviation.
After the poles are erected, the horizontal / cross bracing should be fitted and the
supports held in a vertical position with the help of temporary guys of manila rope
of at least 25 mm dia. Ensuring that the poles are held in a vertical position (this
can be checked with a spirit level) the concreting of the poles with cement,
granite chips of size 20/30 mm mesh and sand in the ratio M400 conforming to
ISS is to be done from the bottom of the support to the ground level. Before
lifting the pole in the pit, concrete padding of not less than 75 mm thickness may
be put for the distribution of the load of the support on the soil.
After the concreting is done, the pit may be filled with earth after curing of the
concrete is completed.
Four stays along the line, two in each direction and two stays along the bisection
of angle of deviation are to be provided.
Stay concreting may be done with M 400 concrete mixture.
The D.P. shall be erected as per the sketch enclosed.
6.0
ANCHORING AND PROVIDING GUYS FOR SUPPORTS
Guys are to be provided to the supports at the following places (i) Angle
locations, (ii) Dead end locations, (iii) Tee-off points, (iv) Steep gradient locations
to avoid uplifted on the poles.
The installation of guy will involve the following works:
Excavation of pit and fixing of stay rod.
Fastening guy wire to the support.
Tightening guy wire and fastening to the anchor
The marking of the guy pit for excavation, the excavation of pits and setting of
the anchor rod must be carefully carried out. The stay rod should be placed in
i)
ii)
iii)
Page | 31
the position such that the angle of inclination of the rod with the vertical face of
the point is 30°/45° as the case may be. The concreting of the stay at the bottom
should then be carried out. The back filling and ramming must be well done
thereafter, and allowed to set for at least 7 days. The free end of the guy wire is
passed through the eye of the anchor rod, bent back parallel to the main portion
of the guy and bound after inserting the G.I. Thimble. The loop is protected by
the G.I. Thimble, where it bears on the anchor rod. Where the existence of guy
wire proves hazardous, it should be protected with suitable asbestos pipe, filled
with concrete of about 2 mts length above the ground level, duly painted with
white and black stripe so that it may be visible at night. The turn buckle shall be
mounted at the pole end of the stay and guy wire so fixed that the eye bolt turn
buckle is half way in the working position, thus giving the maximum movement
for tightening or loosening.
Guy insulators are placed to prevent the lower part of the guy from becoming
electrically energized by a contact of the guy when the conductors snap and fall
on them of due leakage. No guy insulator shall be located less than 2.6 mts. from
the ground.
The anchoring and providing guys for supports (Single guy Bow guy fly guy) shall
be done as per sketch enclosed. Bow guy and fly guy shall be provided as per
field conditions.

8.0 CONDUCTOR ERECTIONS
8.1
The erection of overhead line conductor is a very important phase in
construction. The erection of conductors can be sub-divided into 4 separate parts as
follows:
Transport of conductors to work site.
Paving and stringing of conductors.
Tensioning and sagging of conductors.
Joining of conductors.
At the important crossing of roads, canals, navigable rivers, railways etc.,
flagmen should be in attendance to ensure that normal services are not
unduly interrupted. These crossing should only be carried out in conjunction
with and with the approval of the proper authorities concerned.
The conductor drums shall be transported to the tension point without injuring
the conductor, if, it is necessary to roll the drum on the ground for a small
distance, it should be slowly rolled in the direction of the marked on the drum.
The drum should be so supported that it can be rotated freely. For this
purpose the drum should either be mounted on the cable drum supports of
jacks or hung by means of chain pulley of suitable capacity, suspended from a
tripod. In case if it is not possible to raise the conductor drum by any of the
above method, a trench of suitable depth slightly bigger than the conductor
drum may be dug, so as to facilitate free rotation of the cable drum when it is
suspended in the trench by means of M.S. Shaft. While paving, care should
be taken to see that conductor does not rub against any metallic fitting of the
pole or on the bad/rocky ground. Wooden trusses should be used for this
purpose to support the conductor. The conductor should be passed over the
poles on wooden or aluminum snatch pulley blocks provided with low friction
bearings. While conductor is being paved out slowly, some braking
i.
ii.
iii.
iv.
Page | 33
arrangement should be made so that the rotation of the drum may be stopped
in emergency.
In case the length of one piece of the conductor is less than the length of the
section in which conductor paving is being done, it is easy to stretch one
length of all phases from one end the remaining length from another end of
the section any part of the conductor shall be left at a height of less than that
of 5 meters, above the ground by rough sagging.
8.2
Mid Span Jointing of Conductors
The mid span jointing of conductors can be carried by twisting the joint at the
ends and the wire should project a few centimeter, beyond the end of the
sleeves. The projected wires are given a sharp bend to keep them from
slipping out of the sleeve. The end of the sleeves are then held tightly by
twisting wrenches and then 4 to 5 turns in one direction generally anti-clock
wise direction. Crimping Tools are preferably to be used for joints and
jumpers.
8.3
SAGGING AND TENSIONING
On the completion of the paving of the conductors and making mid span joints
if any, tensioning operations will commence. Temporary guys will have to be
provided for both the anchoring supports in the section where the stringing
has to be done. At the tensioning end, one of the conductors is pulled
manually up to a certain point and then come along clamp is fixed to the
conductor to be tensioned. The grip to the come along clamp is attached to
double sleeve pulley block or the pulley lift machine and gradually tensioned.
The conductor should then be sagged in accordance with the sag temperature
chart for the particular conductor and span. The sag should then be adjusted
in the middle span of the section. The sag chart is to be provided. The stretch
of the conductor has to be taken out before stringing in order to avoid the
gradual increase in sag due to the setting down of the individual wires. There
are ways of accomplishing this:
a) Pre-stressing
In this method the conductor is pulled up to tension considerably above the
correct figures, but never exceeding 50% of breaking load for a short period of
say twenty minutes. As this method requires more time and involves the use
of stronger tackle to secure the higher tension the other method of over
tensioning is commonly adopted.
Page | 34
B) Over-tensioning
This method consists of pulling up the conductor to a tension a little above the
theoretical tension for prevailing temperature and fixed it up at that tension
with correspondingly reduced sag. After a certain time the conductor will settle
down to the correct sag and tension. A tension of five to eight percent more
than the theoretical value has been found to be suitable for the sizes of ACSR
and AAAC conductors standardized by REC. The ambient temperature during
sagging may be recorded correctly.
Conductors can be sagged correctly only when the tension is the same in
each span throughout the entire length of section. Use of snatch blocks
reduces the friction and chances of inequality of tension in various spans.
Sagging can be accomplished by several different methods but most
commonly used method is “Slighting”. The slighting sag method of measuring
sag is by the use of targets placed on the supports below the cross arms. The
targets may be light strip of wood clamped to the pole at a distance equal to
the sag below the conductor when the conductor is placed in snatch block.
The lineman sees the sag from the next pole. The tension of the conductor is
then reduced or increased, until the lowest part of the conductor in the span
coincides with the lineman‟s line of sight.
When sagging is completed, the tension clamps shall be fixed. The clamp can
be fitted on the conductor without releasing the tension. A mark is made on
the conductor at a distance from the cross-arm equal to the length of
complete strain insulator. Before the insulator set is raised to position, all nuts
should be free. Come along clamp is placed on the conductor beyond the
conductor clamp and attached to the pulling unit. The conductor is pulled in
sufficiently to allow the insulator assembly to be fitted to the clamp. After the
conductor is clamped to insulator, assembly unit may be released gradually.
If the tension is released with a jerk, an abnormal stress may be transferred to
conductor and support, which may result in the failure of the cross arm, stay
or pole in some cases. After the stringing is completed, all poles, cross arms,
insulators, fittings etc. are checked upto ensure that there have been no
deformities etc.
The next step is to place the conductor on the top of the pin insulator from the
snatch block and removing snatch blocks. Conductors are then fastened to
insulator by the use of aluminum wires. The following points should be
observed:
i)
ii)
Proper size of the tie binding wire which can be readily handled
and with adequate strength is to be used.
The length of tie wire should be sufficiently long for making
complete tie including the end allowances for gripping with ends.
Page | 35
A good tie should provide a secure binding between the line
conductor and insulator and should reinforce the conductor on
either side of the insulator.
iv)
The use of cutting pliers for binding the tie wire should be avoided.
v)
The tie wire which has been used previously should be reused
Before tying the conductor to the insulator two layers of Aluminum tapes
should be wrapped over the conductor in the portion where it touches the
insulator. The width and thickness of aluminum tape to be used for a specific
size of conductors has been specified in hand books of aluminum conductor
manufacturers and the same be referred to. The Aluminum tapes should also
be used at the tension clamp and for proper grip.
iii)
Normally in straight runs of line, the conductors are run on the top of
insulators. When there is small of deviation the conductor is placed inside
groove and bound. Accordingly, there are two methods of tying the
conductors to insulators. The binding wire/tie wire has to be procured by the
contractor and the bid price shall include the cost of this.
8.4
The contractor shall be entirely responsible for any damage to the supports,
other accessories and conductor. He shall also be responsible for proper
distribution of the conductor drums to keep number and lengths of cut pieces of
the conductor to a minimum.
8.5 CONDUCTOR DAMAGE AND REPAIR
If the conductor is damaged for whatever reasons, and damage is not
repaired by aluminum sleeves, etc., it shall be brought to the notice of the
Engineer and shall not be used without his approval. Even repairing of
conductor surfaces shall be done only in case of minor damages, scuff marks
etc., which are safe from both electrical and mechanical points of view. The
final; conductor surface shall be clean, smooth, without any projection sharp
points, cut or abrasion etc. giving satisfactory corona and R.I. performance.
8.6 No joints or splice be made in span‟s crossing over main roads, railways, small
rivers or intension spans. Not more than one joint per conductor shall be allowed in
one span. The strength of the joint shall conform to IE Rule 75.
8.7 STRINGING.
