Link Boxes Project

The Issue

Link boxes, also known as low voltage network boxes, are the linchpins of the electrical distribution network.

As our demand for electricity increases, DNO’s are under increasing pressure to keep power outages to a minimum and maintain a reputation for reliable supply. They use link boxes as switching points, allowing electricity to be rerouted in the event of a cable fault. This ability to electrify and de-electrify parts of the distribution network is essential. 

Our Solution

At ITL we have been at the forefront of coming up with bespoke solutions for link box maintenance. Many link boxes in urban areas date from early 20th century and have features that present challenges to engineers, such as difficult to access links, obscure gauge sizes (eg 1/2″ Whitworth) and archaic link housing. We have developed solutions for all these and more.
