Blue sun was challenged to design a series of 25m poles which would allow a cable to be tensioned between them for a span of 160 metres and for this cable to have no more than a 1 metre sag. This meant that an approximate load of 15000 kg would be applied to the cables and subsequently transferred through to the poles. As the pole was designed “as a pole” and not a tower this meant deploying the use of critically placed guy wires as well as ensuring a suitable foundation system was in place.
The purpose of these cables (set up in series) is to provide lighting protection to the electrically sensitive assets stored underneath it. This was another job successfully completed by Blue Sun Poles. Location: Mid Jungle -5.579769, 150.181738
