PREFACE

Dubai is one of the renowned cities within the Gulf countries, as well as internationally, for business, security & tourism, which is becoming one of the modern citiy of the world. Therefore, reliability of Electricity becomes one of the basic requirements for modernization.

Electricity is one of the basic needs, for the human beings health, education, business, agriculture, transportation, communication, industrialization & etc. This is to be considered a measuring parameter of the citizen’s living standard, industrialization and economic growth for a country. The mentioned parameters will affect, if there is shortage of electricity or frequent failure, due to any reasons.

Transmission lines are the backbone of electricity network which transmit power from generating stations to distribution system, for supplying power to the customer.

DEWA 400 / 132kV OHL & Cable lines are in open fields and passing through desert / hilly terrain, urban areas and crossing roads / bridge / underpass / canals & utility services etc.

The risk of damages due to contractor’s are very high, due to Possible unauthorized and unsafe construction activities in the vicinity of the lines. In the following consequences, it may lead to partial or full blackout in the Emirates of Dubai, if there are any damages with lines.

To achieve Dubai government‘s vision of supplying uninterrupted electricity, to our valuable customer(s) and to promote development activities, we feel it is quiet essential & noteworthy, sharing the information which is of vital importance with contractor / consultant & utility depts about “DEWA protective rules & regulations” to protect Transmission lines from unwanted damages.

Nevertheless, this handbook will streamline DEWA’s regulations, to the contractor in the implementation of works safety, quality near the Extg. Transmission lines, which will in turn support the purpose of the contractors time & cost, which generally gets affected due to unprofessional work practices.

This handbook will help the contractor / consultant

& utility depts, with the information about the NOC

requirements, DEWA Protective Rules & Regulations to work in the vicinity of OHL & Cables lines, to avoid the unexpected damage to Transmission lines & human injury / death.

We hope contractor / consultant / utility departments

& private parties will follow “DEWA protective rules

& regulations” and cooperate to achieve Dubai governments vision of uninterrupted electricity supply, in the Emirates of Dubai.

NOC FOR CONSTRUCTION WORKS

3.1 General Provisions

3.1.1 Definitions

No Objection Certificate is usually abbreviated as NOC and defined as a written permission issued by Infrastructure Information and Permit / Connection service Department of DEWA to any desiring to carry out the proposed construction as indicated on the submitted and approved Drawings.

3.1.2 Purpose

Issuance of NOC prior to construction works provide first line of protection to all existing DEWA’s assets from proposed construction, as it contents sets of regulatory requirements, protective rules, precautionary measures, engineering construction standards, etc that require clear understanding of every constructors for adherence.

3.1.3 Scope

The extent of application of approved NOC are those areas within or in close proximity to the transmission line networks (400 / 132kV Over Head Line and underground cables)

3.2 Type Of NOC’s

3.2.1 Design NOC

Design NOC is a permission given to consultant to proceed to the proposed project as indicated on the Tender Design Drawing which indicates the approximate locations and clearance of all the existing transmission underground cables and overhead lines.

3.2.2 Trial Pit NOC

Trial Pit NOC is a permission given to contractor to proceed digging-in the number of Trial Pits based on the proposed scope of work limit demarcated on the site as directed by the Patrolling Staff.

A. Purpose of Trial Pit

To confirm the real identification and exact location of existing utility’s assets in relation to proposed construction works and to be the only parameters used in the evaluation and approval of the subsequent Construction NOC.

B. Requirements for Trial Pit Preparation

a. Trial Pit digging should only be initiated with the supervision of DEWA’s representative (TLM-Patrolling). According to the scope of work, Trial Pit location will be marked by the supervisor.

b. The required supervision specified in above should be requested by using DEWA work supervision request format and FAX to DEWA, threet (03) days before to start of any digging works. (Annex 3.1.1)

c. Trial Pit is a trench made across and over the suspected location of underground cable, trough, joint, etc. (Figure: 3.1.2)

d. Trial Pit should only be dig manually by hand to ensure that the buried unconfirmed location of cables may not be penetrated and unaware. (Figure: 3.1.3)

e. Trial Pit Checklist should be satisfied before initiation of digging Trial Pit. (Annex 3.1.1)

C. Trial Pit Verification

After exposing all existing cables, troughs, joints, etc. DEWA’s representative (TLP-Supervisor) to be confirming the exact location of the cables, depth and clearance from the proposed scope of work limit.

Such confirmation should be written and signed by the same Supervisor. The Contractor should submit the verified trial pit details along with construction NOC

Special Cases:

1. In case of 132kV cable not found (HDD area), DEWA supervisor will write in the verification, that cable is not found at x meter depth.

2. Additionally, coordinates from As-Built drg. can be provided for trial pits.

3. Sensor method can be used for identification of 132kV cable.
