Looking for great OLE images

One of the things that we put a lot of effort into is getting the best possible images for the book. For the upcoming 6th edition we have a large number of new and original photos – but there are still a few items that are eluding us; usually for geographical reasons or because the equipment is not accessible to the average div with a camera (me).

If you are reading this and can help with any of these, please get in touch. Please bear in mind that we can only accept images that are high quality (sharp, good exposure) and crucially, that are your copyright. Please don’t suggest images that you got from a 3rd party or website.

These are the images we’re looking for:

  • Three wire crossover
  • Side wear of contact wire
  • Oil Circuit Breaker
  • Vacuum SMOS circuit breaker
  • SF6 indoor circuit breaker
  • 132kV or 400kV feeder station supply transformer
  • AC protection relay
  • SCADA outstation
  • Long portable earth + clamp
  • Panning of OLE
  • Mineral hopper under OLE
  • Contact wire chopping device at Frankfurt tunnel flood doors
  • Panchex uplift monitoring
  • Balance weights in tunnel
  • Burndy tool
