Industry legend Tony Cable will be making his final, farewell tour around the country during the next series of NICEIC and Elecsa’s TechTalk series.
The practical implications of bringing cables within the Construction Products Regulation (EU 305/2011), came into effect on 10 June 2016. This date, known as the Date of Applicability (DoA), was confirmed via listing in the OJEU (ref 2016/C 209/03) a).
As Britain comes to terms with an EU referendum result which has far reaching implications for the economy and government, it is too early to predict the political landscape or the regulatory one which will shape our future and the impact it will have on our industry.
We live in an age where the answer to most questions is only a click away but the answers to some of the big questions surrounding this result will be hard to find and may take some time.
After last week’s shock decision for the UK to leave the EU, Bsria says it is ‘business as usual’ for its members and that the construction industry should remain confident and optimistic about the opportunities out there for existing and new industry projects.
Indeed Bsria is committed to giving ‘extra service to members’ throughout this uncertain time.
Statnett, Norway’s state owned power system operator, has energised 68 km of Nexans’ coloured conductors on its new overhead transmission line connecting central Norway to western Norway. The line will secure the supply of power in the region. Nexans’ coloured conductors have been used on 8.5 km of the line that run through a protected nature reserve, allowing the cables to blend in with the environment.
A high level of uncertainty has been evident in the build up to the referendum but the country has given its decision to leave the EU.
A new scholarship grant that will award £3000 to an individual studying in the electrical industry has been launched by the Joint Industry Board (JIB).
NICEIC and Elecsa have teamed up with iKBBI (The Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Installers) to promote consumer safety within the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom installation market.
BKK Nett AS, the Norwegian power company based in Bergen, will soon be the operator of a recording breaking subsea power link as Nexans just completed a project to install the world’s longest and deepest 420 kV XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) insulated submarine cable system. In a turnkey project worth around 75 million euros to reinforce the grid in western Norway, Nexans has delivered 90 km of 420 kV AC XLPE cable. This contract fulfils Nexans’ vision of helping to meet the growing global demand for electricity.
