All control and monitoring elements should be accessible from the front.
Each sealed-off gas compartment must have its own pressure relief facility, which in event of
arcing fault prevents uncontrolled rupturing of the compartment. The manufacturer must
guarantee an adequate pressure reserve between the operating value of the pressure relief and
the rupturing pressure of the vessels. The pressure relief facilities must limit the effects of a fault
arc to one compartment. Gas escaping under pressure must divert in a direction that is not

uncontrolled bursting of the gas compartment when an accidental arc occurs. The manufacturer

must guarantee a sufficient pressure reserve between the operating pressure of the pressure
relief devices and the bursting pressure of the container.
The gas compartment must be tightly sealed. The filling pressure is to be such that at least 30
years service is guaranteed without the necessity of refilling.
The pressure of the SF6 gas is to be monitored inside the gas compartment by means of
pressure-gauge boxes. In this way, complete temperature compensation can be achieved.
Locking Devices

breaker
The inductive type Cast-resin insulated Voltage transformer shall be mounted outside the primary
enclosure. The VTs can be plugged into the bus bar. The Voltage transformer on bus bar must be

SCHEDULE C

TIMES FOR DELIVERY AND COMPLETION


The individual dates all contractually binding.
The times given under column D are the commissioning target dates at present planned to be
achieved and may be the subject of mutual adjustment.
Column A details the earliest dates by which access to site can be given for storage purposes.
The times entered under column B are to be dates guaranteed for arrival at site for the first
shipment of parts for the circuits in question being also the dates when the contract requires
access to the site for plant erection, to the extent necessary to enable him to proceed with work to
meet the dates under column C guaranteed for complete delivery, erection and commissioning of
the shipment.
The times include all necessary control, relay metering , auxiliary power ancillary equipment to
enable the respective circuit or item of plant to be completely commissioned and put into
commercial operation, together with such other associated equipment, e.g. busbars, etc. as will
ensure that subsequent shutdown are unnecessary or at least only of a temporary or short time
nature.
