restrict unauthorised access by persons to live exposed parts.

CS Energy power station sites must ensure the design, construction, operation and
maintenance records necessary for the electrical safety of the works are be kept in an
accessible form. Electrical equipment must undergo commissioning tests to verify the
equipment is suitable for service and can be operated safely when initially installed or
altered. Labels are to clearly identify parts of the works whose identity or purpose is not
obvious and are to be updated after any changes are made.
Lines and cables are to be maintained so that clearances from the ground/roads and
structures for low and high voltage cables are in accordance with the requirements of the
Electrical Safety Regulations Schedule 4 and 5.
4.3
Earthing and protection
Each power station site is to incorporate and maintain an earthing and protection system
(to stop, as far as is practicable, a person suffering electric shock) capable of the
following:

Reliable passage of fault current and operation of circuit protection devices,

Safe step, touch and transfer potentials for all electrical equipment,

Appropriate coordination with the earthing and protection systems of other


entities,

Protection against likely mechanical damage, inadvertent interference and


chemical deterioration,

Mechanical stability and integrity of connections,

Effective earthing of neutral conductors (MEN system), and

Earthing of each non current carrying exposed conductive part of the


generating plant

4.4

Construction or excavation work in proximity to overhead or underground


electrical lines
Where building, construction or excavation work is proposed to be done, or a change to a
building or structure is to occur within the clearance requirements for overhead or
underground cables (exclusion zones) a Permit to Work/Permit to Dig or Access Permit is
to be obtained by the OIC for the work from CS Energy. The Permit is to outline the
measures taken to protect workers and the electrical works while the activities are being
performed and to ensure the requirements for exclusion zones are complied with.
4.5
Vegetation Management
Vegetation management is to be taken into account for trees and shrubs that are located
at CS Energy Power Station sites and within close proximity of any overhead power lines
associated with adjoining switchyards. Vegetation growth and work on or near the
vegetation is to be monitored so that at any time, the growth of the trees or shrubs and/or
a part of any persons body or anything they are holding or that is attached to their body, or
anything they are using - in association with the vegetation - does not come within the
exclusion zones.

A person is not to undertake tree trimming or vegetation management where any


part of the tree or vegetation to be treated or cut or otherwise worked with is within
the exclusion zones.

A person should not undertake tree trimming or vegetation management where


any part of the tree or vegetation could fall or otherwise be carried within the safe
approach distances.

A formal documented inspection is to be undertaken of all site vegetation every six


months to check if growth is within the exclusion zones.

A Permit to Work is required for any work on or near vegetation that may be within
the exclusion zones.

Hazard Identification: before carrying out any vegetation management work, a JSEA is
required to identify potential hazards and suitable control measures. Hazards to be
considered include, but are not limited to, the following:

Proximity of vegetation and proposed work activity to electric lines (e.g. if the
vegetation involved is located within exclusion zones).

The vegetation or part of the vegetation may fall or otherwise be carried into the
area within exclusion zones.

Carrying out the task would cause a person or anything a person may be holding,
or in contact with, to intrude into exclusion zones.

Wind causing intermittent encroachment of vegetation into the exclusion zone or


wet weather making the situation more dangerous.

Fires and smoke associated with the vegetation may cause trips or damage to the
overhead wires, towers and insulators.

Operational characteristics of equipment eg length of boom and speed of


movement of an elevating work platform (EWP). Some examples of operational
characteristics that may present a hazard are: knuckle boom EWPs where
convenient placement of the basket can have part of the boom intruding into
roadways or other hazardous areas;

Cutting equipment such as chain saws, which may "kick back", causing equipment
to move inadvertently; or

Site conditions such as weather (wind), terrain, vehicular and other traffic. For
example, heavy traffic on an adjacent roadway could prevent safe access to
vegetation.

Maintaining Electrical Installation/Equipment Requirements

5.1
General
A licensed electrical worker who performs electrical work on an electrical installation or
electrical equipment is to ensure that the installation or equipment, to the extent it is
affected by the electrical work, is in accordance with AS/NZS 3000 Electrical
Installations.
Where CS Energy, as a holder of an electrical contractor license, engages contracted
electrical workers to perform such work, CS Energy must ensure the electrical installation
or equipment complies with AS/NZS 3000 by:

ensuring that only licensed electrical contractors perform such work, and

ensuring that test certificates are received stating that the electrical
installation or equipment satisfies AS/ZNS 3000 requirements.

Persons in control of low voltage electrical installations at each Power Station are not to
allow the earthing for the installations to be inconsistent with the earthing system
requirements for the entity works.
A modification officer or equivalent, as defined within the site Power Station specific Plant
Modification Procedure is to ensure:

that a competent electrician or electrical engineer designs the new or


modified electrical installation or equipment,

that the Electrical Contractor Licensee documents the inspections and


tests required by this procedure, and

the resulting inspection and test documentation is filed within the


relevant modification and or maintenance site file.

Electrical Contractor Licensee

The Electrical Contractor Licensee is to inspect and test the electrical installation and
ensure compliance to AS/NZS 3000 where modification work has been performed. The
Electrical Contractor Licensee may allow another competent electrician to perform the
inspection and tests, providing the Licensee coordinates such tasks and also endorses
the result sheets.
Note: If the work is maintenance work (i.e. removal and replacement of a motor) the maintenance electrical
worker is to ensure compliance and sign the test certificate. No further signature is required by the Licensee.

The requirements to ensure for visual inspection in accordance with AS/NZS 3000,
Section 6.2.2, are summarised in Attachment 1 Visual Inspection Check Sheet.
The requirements for tests on the installation are to be in accordance with AS/NZS 3000,
Section 6.3, and are summarised in Attachment 2 Electrical Tests Check Sheet. Test
methods are further defined in AS/NZS 3017 and the sequence of electrical testing is
described in the Flow Chart below.

6.3
Inspection and maintenance of integrity of insulation
The integrity of the insulation of an electric line forming part of the power station site
electrical works (entity works) is to be inspected and maintained at periodic intervals. The
person performing the inspections and maintenance work is to check the integrity of the
electrical insulation where the line:

forms parts of the entity works,

is adjacent to a roof or structure, and

is in a position where it is likely that a person could come into contact with the
line (eg. cooling tower fan motor cables, EFP motor cables, ID fan motor
cables, persons painting near cables, sections of conduit from underground
cables to electric motors, sections of cable trays that are accessible).

Maintenance practices are to include visual inspections and megger testing of cables at
regular intervals such as during an overhaul. A compliant testing and maintenance
routine/plan is to be implemented in SAP to reflect this requirement.

7.0

Recording Inspections and Testing

7.1
General
The person performing the tests is to use the check sheets provided in Attachments 1 & 2.
Site-specific check sheets may also be utilised (e.g. for each motor, incomer, feeder etc.
for the 440V system).
Once the inspection and testing tasks are completed, the Electrical Contractor Licensee is
to sign the Certificate of Testing and Compliance a certificate is provided in Attachment
3.
Power Station specific cable schedule records are to be updated as appropriate and
circuit schedules on switchboards are to be updated in a legible way. Consideration is to
be given to re-typing circuit schedules on switchboards where a number of modifications
have been made.
The certificate of testing and compliance is to be filed in the site CS Energy file for that
particular modification and/or in the site maintenance files.
Note: a second copy of the certificate may be stored in the sites central register for audit
purposes.
