General Description of Requirement
The City of Vancouver Engineering Services (the City) is seeking consulting services to complete a wiring standards risk assessment analysis of the City’s streetlight poles system. Details of the City’s objectives and requirements to which the RFP relates are set out in Part B of the RFP.
The City of Vancouver owns and maintains over 44,000 streetlight poles. The voltages supplied for street lights in the City of Vancouver are 120V-1φ and 240V-1φ from system voltages that include 120/240V-1φ, 120/208V-3φ, and 347/600V-3φ. The existing pole and underground power distribution infrastructure installations range from the 1940s to present day. As electrical safety and Electrical Code requirements have changed over time, existing installations may not meet current code requirements.
The City’s current streetlight pole wiring standard is diagramed in Drawing LDS-1.4. The diagram details the installation of a bond conductor from the service panel to each pole, and the internal wiring of the bonding conductor in each pole to the bonding stud and the luminaire ground.
