  • Understand failures in termination installation for all connector types, but with a particular focus on T-connectors.
  • Define, improve, and standardise training and control procedures, which will be applicable at 66 kV and 132 kV. 
  • Increase the quality of termination installation.
  • Quantify demand on workforce and future skills shortages, identify limiting factors and incentives for increased workforce, through supply chain engagement.
