Electrical Service for Third Phase
Last week the Shelby team pulled three 000 wire from the substation to the new building going up. We used Bob's trailer as a pulling rack for the 9 bundles of wire. I gave some details earlier about the ditch and so forth. We used 9 people to direct the wire into the conduit and 20 people to pull the wire through the 420 ft. of conduit. It went off without a hitch. The problem came when the wires were to short and we had to splice them all only 10 ft. away from termination. We figured out where we went wrong. We moved the electrical room down 10 ft. and the engineer that bought the wire didn't know we did. It all worked out in the end. It just took us a little longer to terminate the wire ends. Have a great rest of your week and God bless.
