This is a note of recommendation for HV Cablepower; St Ives Gold Mine installed a new 13.5 MW Drive on their Gearless Mill in July 2016. This required 144 High Voltage Termination to be completed that was on the shut downs critical path. It was decided to appoint a specialised sub-contractor to complete the HV terminations due to their currency of competence with the said task.

HV Cablepower was awarded the contract and completed the task with no major incidents and was instrumental in reducing the shutdown from a scheduled three weeks to just over two weeks.

Dave Boyd and his team showed excellent technical skills, with Dave actively managing the team and performing excellent quality control on the work.

If I was managing a similar project with the same risks, I would definitely be using the services of HV Cablepower.

HVC was appointed by ABB to do outdoor terminations in the Philippines, we then decided to award further Sudkabel Indoor GIS works that needed to be completed. This ended up being the best  decision for ABB, Philippines.

Dave and his team provided more value with their excellent technical capability and their strong support to the customer. The work was done on time, within budget and was of the highest quality.

We would highly recommend Dave and his team for any cable jointing works. They have exceeded our expectations and we look forward to working with them successfully on any further projects we may have.

Dave Boyd from HV Cablepower has worked for me on many 33kV projects over the last 5 years for Downer Engineering.  I have always found Dave to be professional and the work he carries out is to a high standard with safety being their main priority.

The paperwork submitted by Dave and his company is always prompt, including JHA’s, SWMS and QA Sheets.  His knowledge and experience is often called upon by Downer Engineering to help with planning and design of projects prior to starting, Dave goes out of his way to ensure the project runs smoothly from start to finish.

For this reason Dave is my preferred HV installer and I will continue to use him and his team as do many of my colleagues at Downer Engineering.

ABB engaged Dave Boyd as a quality control inspector on the install of 132kV ABB inline straight joints in
Jamshedpur, India.

Dave’s role was to observe and give advice to local jointers to ensure the high standards expected from ABB were maintained at all times. This involved checking all measurements and standard of workmanship, a record and photographs were taken of every step.

Dave was engaged by ABB because of his high level of experience within the field of EHV jointing and his overall knowledge of the ABB products. Dave produced a high level of documents and picked up on a few points that if notidentified could have resulted in failure down the line.

All this was undertaken within, at times, very trying conditions to which Dave adapted to ensure the best results for the project.

For this reason Dave and ABB have an excellent working relationship and we will continue to use Dave and his team at HV Cablepower as both Inspectors and Jointers.
