HA Trial

During 2015, PACE Networks worked with Babcock and SP Energy Networks to trial 132kV Composite Insulators for use on Tower Projects. Other UK DNOs / TNOs have been utilising polymeric technology for several years and SP Energy Networks wanted to this next step to gain the inherent benefits for their network at this voltage. PACE provided the Suspension and Tension Insulators for this project to be installed by Babcock on the HAR Route, running through the Cheshire countryside. Feedback from the installation team highlighted they were extremely easy to install and saved a lot of time compared to Glass insulators. They were easier and safer to handle and more work could be completed when compared to Glass, which in turn saved money on Wayleaves, reduced plant operation activities due to less weight logistics and other time related activities. As a direct result of the HA trial, our suspension and tension 132kV insulators up to 190kN are now fully approved for Tower Projects by SP Energy Networks.
