WETHERBY, HARROGATE ROAD, STOCKELD BOREHOLE 1157 P/E-ESQCR (Recover P/E & Reposition term pole).
Scheme Note – YP08494
A inspection of the Stockeld Borehole 1157 P/E found that safety clearance to a nearby building contravened those recommended in the current ESQCR Regulations.
Stockeld Borehole 1157 P/E is located on terminal pole A0041 / 04-2025, being part of the Stockeld Borehole 11kV overhead spur. It is situated within the grounds of a Yorkshire Water pumping station and provides a 3ph supply to the pump house. The pump house building is close to the P/E associated 11kV overhead conductors and recommended safety clearances would be breeched should work be carried out on the building.
After discussion with Yorkshire Water it has been established that the pumping station is no longer in use and the supply can be disconnected. The land is also up for sale. It has proposed therefore to recover the P/E, disconnect the supply and move the terminal pole forward away from the building and reterminate the conductors at this position. Although the new terminal position will be adjacent to the boundary fence the height of the conductors above the fence will be within recommended safety clearances. If there is any doubt an anti climbing guard should be fitted. A Generation Cost / Benefit analysis has shown that the hire of generators cannot be justified for this scheme. Only 7 customers will be affected by the single outage required to do the work.
This scheme is for technical and financial authorisation only. Wayleaves and Overhead Route profile are required and have been requested by System Design. They will be forwarded direct to Construction Delivery when completed. No work is to start on the site until all necessary wayleaves and consents have been obtained.
Scheme KPI”s 1 Clearances:-
Divert Hv or LV O/H with O/H 1 Horizontal 1
Replace HV O/H conductors with XLPE 0 Vertical 1
Replace LV O/H Conductors with ABC 0
Replace HV or LV O/h with U/G 0
