GENEMAT Mongolian substation tench cover Project
Substations have large amounts of electrical conduits and cabling which are usually run underground in precast concrete or cast in place trenches. Precast trenches are frequently preferred for their ease of installation and consistent fabrication.
Mongolian substation chose Genemat’s Composite trench covers for their new electrical substation.
Historically precast concrete trenches have been covered with concrete or metal covers. Where high load ratings are required (like road crossings), such covers can weigh many hundreds of pounds and are therefore difficult to remove and replace. In addition, over time environmental factors can cause metal covers to corrode and concrete covers to crack, fracture or crumble.
Genemat developed a line of lightweight composite covers specifically to fit Mongolian substation’s precast concrete road crossing trenches and designed to handle BS EN124 A15 Class(1.5 tonne) load ratings. The Genemat trench covers are extremely durable, non-conductive, chemically resistant and not adversely affected by extreme weather or environmental conditions. The covers are also light enough to be safely and easily removed by two operators when monitoring or maintenance of the conduits or cables in the trench is required.
Genemat covers are currently available for trenches from 500MM to 1000MM length and will withstand harsh field conditions for many years.
Genemat trench covers have an anti-skid surface allowing for safe walking or driving in all conditions and Genemat trench covers are manually removable at all load ratings.
Genemat offers custom branding and colours.
