20047.VAR.STA.SDS ReV. 0 August 1995 Sheet 12

The coils shall be placed near the control room, and the cables shall be pulled up to the relevant junction box. Cables for AD-SI plants shall be laid into dedicated cable trays. Their laying into cable trays together with not intrinsically safe instrumentation cables can be approved by the Company, provided that an insulating or metallic earthed screen is placed between the two types of cables. The identification of all the AD-SI plant's components shall comply with CEI 64.2 (Art. 9.7.01). The route of the instrumentation cables shall be separated by the power and lighting cables one. Parallel sections of the route shall be at a minimum distance of 0.5 m. The cables shall be properly protected against any contact with incandescent objects or dripping of hydrocarbons, to avoid the occurrence of fire. 3.11.2 Diggings and trench ducts The route of buried cables or multiple tubing shall be implemented in one of the following ways: digging directly in the ground: a trench digging with dimensions as indicated in the project and in accordance with the provisions of the Company at the time of its execution. The digging shall have dimensions larger of at least 0.30 m than the width of the cables bundle. The diggings shall be carried out, whenever possible, with sloped walls to avoid landslides. When this is not possible, propping of the vertical walls with wood or steel boards shall be provided. Before laying the cables, all the metallic scraps and other deposits which could damage the cables shall be removed from the ground adjacent to the digging. The bottom of the digging shall be flattened, by covering the depressions with thwacked ground, after that all the bumps and objects which could damage the cables, as stones, roots, scraps, etc., have been removed. The bottom of the digging shall be covered by a compacted and levelled layer of washed sand, with a 10 cm. minimum thickness. The cables shall then covered by an equal thick layer of sand and by a protection layer of bricks or red concrete blocks. After the completion of the protection against mechanical damages, the digging is filled with ground of the type specified in the project, free of deposits and then compacted. Concrete or PVC conduits are utilised for the road crossings. The group of conduits is held in place by a cement casting (block). After the insertion of the cables, the ends of the conduits are sealed by bituminised adhesive compound against the entry of ground. The route of cables and tubes shall be slightly sinuous to avoid that traction stresses generated by settlements or ground settling occurs when the cover with ground is completed. trench ducts: Trench ducts, wells, etc., shall be filled with sand after their laying to avoid accumulation of hazardous substances. It is mandatory to avoid the sand filling, when the trench duct is not completely dry.

20047.VAR.STA.SDS ReV. 0 August 1995 Sheet 13

3.11.3

Cable trays Prefabricated cable trays and relevant auxiliaries shall be utilised, complete with lid in galvanised steel for on-shore plants, or in AISI 316 stainless steel for off-shore plants. The use of painted steel beams as cable trays is accepted for width lower than 100 mm in on-shore plants. The supports shall be at a such distance that the arrow is lower than 1/150 of the supports intervals with 100% of the project load. The distance between two cable trays, placed the one over the other, shall allow the easy laying ad fixing of cables. The connections between sections of cable trays shall be carried out with stainless steel bolts or by welding. When prefabricated connections for cable trays are not available, they shall be fabricated from sections of cable tray by the Contractor. The electric continuity of a system of cable trays shall be obtained by sections of earth wires, by welding or bolts tightening. Each system of cable trays shall be connected to the protection earthing system at least in two points. The cable trays shall be installed so that they will not interfere with cohibentations, protections or fire-fighting coatings, the spaces necessary for the mechanical maintenance are accessible, and thermal expansion of the structures or pipes to which the cable trays are fixed are taken into consideration.

3.11.4

Conduits The cables conduits, internally and externally galvanised, and their auxiliaries can be utilised as mechanical protection of single couple cables from the main cable tray to each single user or as protection of multiple cables from the digging to the junction box. They can be utilised also for instrumentation electrical plants in AD-PE execution and watertight plants in accordance with the applicable Rules, when required in the project documents. Diameters from 1/2" to 4" are utilised. The conduits may be cold bent to the bending radius indicated in the Rules. Junction boxes with removable lids shall be installed at such intervals to facilitate the insertion of the cables. Three pieces couplings shall be utilised whenever necessary for the assembly and disassembly and normally at the entry of the insertion boxes. The maximum filling shall be 30%. Locking couplings shall be installed in the positions indicated in the Rules for AD-PE plants with a conduits network. Collars at intervals suitable to obtain a sufficient rigidity shall be used for clamping the conduits. Slopes and drain valves shall be provided in the lower points of the conduits network to discharge the formation condense. The electric continuity of the conduits network, which shall be earthed in at least two points, shall be verified.

3.11.5

Laying of cables The laying of the cables shall be carried out at an ambient temperature larger than 0 C. Before the cables laying, the adjacent ground shall be cleaned by any scrap. The laying of cables shall be carried out with no interruption. When this cannot be achieved, the Contractor shall protect both the already laid cables and the ones still to be laid.

20047.VAR.STA.SDS ReV. 0 August 1995 Sheet 14

The unreeling of the cable with the coil standing on a rack shall be such that the cable leaves the coil from the lower side, or moving the coil holder along the route. The cables shall be cut in length suitable for their termination and connections, avoiding useless scraps. The cable shall be omega bent before being connected to the relevant user. In this way, its disconnection is facilitated and a spare length is available for future modifications. The ends of the unused tubes lengths shall be protected by plastic caps, to avoid the inlet of foreign bodies. In the aerial routes, for cohibented pipes crosses, the thickness of the thermal insulation, which may be installed after the laying of the cable tray, and the 20 cm. minimum necessary space between the cohibentation and the cable trays, shall be taken into consideration. Each cable or tube shall be identified, as indicated in the project documents, by lead or other corrosion resistant material nameplates, which shall be applied at intervals of about 20 m, at the entry and the exit of the digging (or trench duct), and at both the ends of the route. Clips shall be applied to the cables mechanically and not by adhesive. Two cores cables and pipes for the pneumatic connections shall be properly tagged at the exit of the relevant junction box (if any). The pipes for the pneumatic connections shall be properly straightened before their laying, to eliminate all the deformations. Special attention shall be paid to the execution of the curves, to avoid restrictions in the flow section. 3.12 3.12.1 Installation and connections in the control room Equipment interconnection in control room The interconnections in the control room shall be by multiple cables inside cable trays installed below the removable floor. 3.12.2 Entry of cables and tubing in control room Electric cables and pneumatic tubing entering the control room shall be sealed, in correspondence of the external wall of the building, to avoid the inlet of humidity or, in general, foreign matters. The following procedure shall be applied for any different type of entry: a) Buried or concrete trench duct entry: sealing by suitable cable glands supported by a fra me annealed in the building wall. sealing at the ends of suitable lengths of conduits or PVC pipes (diameter about 100 mm) annealed in the building wall. Outside the wall, the space between the cables (or pipes) and the internal side of the pipe shall be sealed by a bituminised adhesive compound. At the other end of the pipe (inside the wall) the space shall be sealed by a proper sealing compound (CHICO compound o equivalent).

b) laying in aerial cable tray: sealing by suitable cable glands supported by a frame annealed in the building wall. c) Laying in both buried and aerial conduit: sealing of cables by locking couplings on the conduit outside the building wall. The distribution of cables and pneumatic pipes shall be done below the removable floor of the control room or inside the provided trench ducts; generally, the cables are laid into cable trays clamped to the floor or to the supports of the removable floor. 3.12.3 Separation of cables The following categories of cables shall be separated: cables for instruments power supply intrinsically safe cables extension cables for T/C Anchoring, identification and connection of cables All the cables shall be anchored before being connected to their dedicated terminal strip, so that the traction on the cables is not transmitted to terminals and connectors. Each conductor connected to a terminal strip shall be provided with suitable termination and alphanumeric identification marking. The multiple cables shall be identified as well by clips with the cable tag. 3.12.4 Installation of auxiliary panels and boards After the removal of the packing, panels and boards shall be taken immediately to the site (control room) where they shall be installed. The equipment shall be handled carefully to avoid unwanted stresses to the metallic structure or damages to the painting. The installation of auxiliary panels and boards shall comply with the project drawings and with the Manufacturer's instructions. In the presence of a removable floor, they shall be rested on it after that the openings for the entry of the cables have been carried out. The control panel and the other boards shall be firmly fixed to the support structures by bolts. When the control panel and the other boards are received at site in more than one section, they shall be mechanically assembled and the foreseen connections shall be restored.

SCRAPS In addition to the contractual requirements, pipes and beams in commercial length shall be utilised by the contractor, in such a way to not leave lengths larger than 0.5 m and a total scrap equal to 3% of their total length. Lengths lower than 0.5 m shall be classified as not recoverable scraps. The Company shall allocate an area where these scraps shall be accumulated. The Contractor shall utilise them, every time it will be possible. The cables shall be utilised properly, taking into account the available lengths, so that useless lengths will not remain in the coils. The Contractor, for this purpose, shall agree with the Company an utilisation plan for the stored lengths. Scraps with total length lower than 2% for connections with lengths up to 100 m, or 1.5% for lengths up to 200 m, or 1% for larger lengths shall be considered acceptable. For very short connections, scraps with a total length not larger than 3% for each cable connection are acceptable.
