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.
EMA and SPPG has implemented the Registered Earthworks Supervisor (RES) scheme to enhance the cable/gas pipeline damage prevention. Site supervisors, and anyone interested to be a RES, may enrol for the RES course conducted at BCA Academy (BCAA) or Singapore Institute of Power and Gas (SIPG). For contractors working under SPPA/SPPG, they will attend RES course conducted at SIPG. Upon successful completion of the RES course, site supervisors will have to register as a RES with SPPG, and be issued with a RES registration pass. RES registration has commenced as of 1st April 2017.
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.
