Windfarm Splice Failure

Emergency Response Field Service

The development of electricity through wind has quickly become one of the most environmentally friendly methods of power production in Canada. As a contributing member to improving Alberta’s environmental conditions, REV has become involved in many windfarm projects over the years.

Taber Wind Farm, located southeast of the town of Taber, has kept REV busy as we have helped the wind farm to seamlessly and consistently produce green energy by providing efficient emergency response field services. The wind farm produces 81 MW of power with the help of 37 Enercon turbines, making it one of the most sophisticated turbines in the world.

In July 2016, REV responded to an emergency callout on a 25kV cable failure on the collector system at the Taber Wind facility. Upon arriving at the site REV’s field service technicians set out to find where the cable fault was located within the collector system using TDR (time domain reflectometry). After figuring out the general area of the fault, a cable fault wizard was used and set to ‘thump’ after safely isolating the area.

The following day a third party hydrovac truck was brought in to expose the cable and reveal the field splice. REV’s technicians successfully repaired the splice and retested the cable to NETA standards IEEE 400.2. We are incredibly proud of our field service technicians and their consistency in efficiently and safely responding to emergency situations such as this.
