Hartford Electric hosts area training
This week, Hartford is the training site for a seminar and workshop for utilities to review their knowledge of using 200-amp equipment and to expand their knowledge of using 600-amp equipment. Participants will have hands-on opportunities to create switching procedures, work on energized and de-energized equipment, and splice and terminate cables at an operating voltage of 25,000 volts. Training will also include using safe work clearances, proper grounding techniques, and safe work practices. Hartford was asked to host this seminar and lead a few of the training sessions based on our lengthy experience using 600-amp equipment at 25kV along with our history of safe work practices. Congratulations to our well-trained crew for being asked to train other utilities.
