8. EXECUTION

8.1 Safe Excavation Works – Technical Requirements


8.1.1 Trenches must be provided with access and egress every 15 meters.
8.1.2 Access ladders must be secured, extend at least 1 meter above the top of the excavation and not be
longer than 5 meters. To access excavations deeper than 5 meters specific access / egress means
shall be in place (stairway towers, then ladders).
8.1.3 All storage materials must be kept at least at a distance of 1.2 meters from the edge of the excavation
unless other distance is defined by an authorized engineer.
8.1.4 Vehicle movement must be kept at a distance of 3 meters from the edge of the excavation.
8.1.5 A warning chain must be present at a distance of at least 1.5 meters from all edges of the excavation
less than 1.2 meters deep.
8.1.6 Excavations of more than 1.2 meters in depth, requiring any specific access means, must have rigid
barriers and toe-boards (or any system which provides equivalent protection as toe-boards) around the
outside to prevent persons and material from falling. Toe-boards are not required when a safety

110 kV Substation Method of Statement

distance of 1.5 meters is maintained between edge of excavation and rigid barrier. Excavations
between 0,5 and 1,2 meters in depth must have rigid barriers around the outside to prevent persons
and material from falling, except when a safety distance of 1.5 meters is maintained at all times by
visible safety chains or flexible mesh at 1.1 meter height.
8.1.7 A protective system to prevent collapse of the excavation or cave-in (e.g.: sloping, shoring and
benching, shielding, support systems) must be installed when the excavation is more than 1.2 meters
deep.
8.1.8 When the excavation is more than 5 meters in depth, the excavation must comply with the specification
as defined by the authorized civil engineer.
8.1.9 When persons need to cross an excavation, a bridging walkway must be designed according to the
local code and must be erected with handrails which can withstand a minimum load of 1kN horizontally.

8.2 Preparation for Excavation

The excavation area will be defined and marked on the ground by powdered lime by the topographer
according to the relevant project drawing. As shown in the following figure.
This marking work will be record in the survey report. Working areas will be defined according to below
sketch at related report.

8.3 Excavation

Excavation will be performed by excavator or backhoe loader in charge of topographer. The area will be
excavated till providing the bottom level in the project. Each excavation area will have slope in accordance
with EHS standards. Then, excavation pits must be cleaned until provide the only ground surfaces to
adherence between concrete. If there is water in the pits, it will be drawn with pumps before concrete.
After final checking the measurements of the foundations by the topographer it will be ready to blinding
concrete. Sizes of the foundations will change according to equipment types. Approximately the maximum
depth of the excavation will be 2,5 meters.

8.4 Blinding Concrete

10 cm blinding concrete will be performed to the foundations. After drying and shrinkage of concrete, rebar
works will begin.
8.5 Rebar Works of Foundations
Rebar works will be constructed according to the drawings. Tension Test will be made before using rebar
and providing the necessary strength of rebar will be determined. Then they will be checked according to
distance between rebar grids and size of the rebar etc. At this section, both horizontal and vertical type rebar
structures will be installed.

Concrete speacer will be used to achive the space betwen lean concrete and Rebars. The high of those
concrete speacer will be according to the dimensions presented in design.
Plastic speacer will be used to achive the space betwen formwork and Rebars. The high of those plastic
speacer will be according to the dimensions presented in design.

Concrete speacer Plastic Speacer

8.6 Footing Concrete

Completion of rebar installation and form work, the footing concrete will be poured according to concrete
level in the drawing.

Slump test will be performed on each concrete mixer that delivered lean concrete to site. Slump
measurements will be recorded in Concrete Pouring Cards.

Page 10 of 16
110 kV Substation Method of Statement

8.7 Formwork and Concretes of Anchor Footings

Timber sized 5x10 and 10x10 will be constitute for concrete and plywood form. After drying and shrinkage of
lean concrete, formworks will be performed and covered the vertical rebar structures (anchor footing rebar
structure) according to the sizes in the foundation projects. Thereafter, anchor bolts will be placed according
to the anchor templates. When all anchor and formworks fixed and finished, foundations will be ready to
pouring concrete. If it is necessary concrete will be poured with the help of the pump.
To provide diffusion of the concrete, vibration will be applied with a vibration machine by the workers.
During concrete works, samples will be taken for compressive strength test on each concrete pouring day. 9
cube samples will be taken for each test. (3 for 7 days test 3 for 28 days test & 3 for reserve or 56 days
test). If necessary concrete is more than 40 m3, sampling operation will be performed for each 40 m3 of
concrete delivered at site. Also slump test will be applied and recorded in Concrete Pour Cards for each
concrete mixer before pour. Curing of concrete cubes will be done on the Laboratory (Accredited
Laboratory).

8.8 Form Dismantling and Concrete Curing

After drying and providing the necessary strength of concrete, the formwork will be dismantled. Concrete
curing will be implemented in accordance with related technical specification. Watering of concrete will be
used for concrete curing at summer season. Concreting place will be watered by hose.

8.9 Earthing Substructure

Concrete : 25 - 30 days

10. PROGRESS MEASUREMENT


On time base progress curves will be indicated in each monthly report.

11. QUALITY REQUIREMENTS


The works of the Company HPP Banja, Cerrik Switchyard in this MS will be performed according to relevant
Inspection and Test Plan (ITP) .
To provide the controls after finishing the works, Relevant Check Lists will be followed.
ENBI-Power shall be strictly comply with the Project QA/QC Plan which is approved by DHP.
Method Statements, Inspection and Test Plans and Checklists will be delivered to DHP, 1 month before the starting of
the site works and/or factory tests. According to the comments of DHP, suitable changes will be applied immediately
and the documentation will be completed.
The checklists, which are going to be approved by DHP during inspection, will stand for the confirmation of the work
and be used as site documents those record the control.
In case of occurring non-conformities during the execution of work, they will be recorded and reported to the related
head contacts. A correction plan for the work will be prepared after required survey.

12. HEALTH and SAFETY REQUIREMENTS

12.1 Personal Protective Equipment
