Under the Electricity Act and Gas Act, any person who carries out earthworks in the vicinity of high voltage underground electricity cables (6.6kV, 22kV, 66kV, 230kV or 400kV) or gas pipes, is required to obtain information of the existing electricity cables or gas pipes, engage a Licensed Cable Detection Worker to carry out cable detection and notify SP no less than 7 days prior to the commencement of earthworks. This is to avoid any damage to the electricity cables and gas pipes.

We strongly recommend prior diversion of electricity cables and gas pipes in advance, if they are affected by the proposed earthworks. This would avoid any damage and minimise disruption to the progress of the earthworks.
Should any diversion of cable or gas pipe be required, please click here to request for diversion.
Before the start of earthworks, please send your Notice for Commencement of Earthworks (NCE) through e-submission here.
Since 1 April 2018, SP and EMA implemented the requirement for earthworks contractors to deploy a Registered Earthworks Supervisor (RES) at work sites in the vicinity of any high voltage electricity cables, and medium/high pressure gas pipelines.
This requirement was introduced to ensure that all earthwork site supervisors are trained and are competent to supervise the worksite, and as such prevent cable/gas pipeline damages. The RES will be responsible to ensure that cable/gas pipeline damage prevention measures stipulated in SP’s Letter of Requirements, are adhered to at work sites.
Any contractor who contravenes the RES requirement, shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $100,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 5 years or to both, under the Electricity Act and Gas Act.
With rapid growth and urbanisation of Singapore’s economy and society, demand for power supply has increased and there is a need to build a more sustainable solution to the ongoing upgrading and renewal of our grid infrastructure.
The cross-island electricity transmission cable tunnels contribute to the reliability and security of Singapore’s electricity network, known as one of the best performing networks in the world.
With the tunnels, installation and replacement of underground electricity cables can be done more quickly and efficiently.
The construction of the tunnels commenced in 2013 and is scheduled for completion in 2018.
SP has built one of the world’s best electricity and gas networks to power the Singapore economy. Singapore today has one of the fewest and shortest electricity outages of cities worldwide. Supply interruptions are few and their durations brief. We encourage our customers to take the initiative of studying power quality technologies that can provide performance improvements to achieve optimal power quality and better serve their needs.
We value feedback from customers in our continuous efforts to uphold and improve our service. Every year, we conduct customer satisfaction survey to gather feedback from our commercial and industrial customers on how the grid has fared in meeting their expectations in grid reliability of our transmission and distribution network.
