Posted By Topic: temporary wiring to mobile kitchen 40ft container.

hig guys I'm running temporary wiring to the above mobile kitchen while the owner refurbish their kitchen to a rest home.
The container has a 63amp 3phase neautral and earth reyrolle male plug on it with switch boards inside pre loaded with all the mcbs including rcds etc.
I will run a already made up flexexible 20m supply to it with a 63amp mcb on a adjacent sub switchboard close by.
Two questions:
1. Do I need an isolator anywhere on this temporary supply.
2. Is the earth on the reyrolle pluf sufficient or do I shove a earth peg in the ground.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Your questions
Q1. Do I need an isolator anywhere on this temporary supply.

A1 yes all socket outlets require an control switch 3000 cl 4.4.4.1

Q2. Is the earth on the reyrolle plug sufficient or do I shove a earth peg in the ground.

A2 The earth on the plug and supply lead should be sufficient.

The sockets will already have their required local control (not necessarily isolating)switches.
The supply you are running can be isolated by its mcb.
Just make sure this "connectable installation" has a current WoEF before connecting it to your new supply.

I am assuming that the Reyrolle plugs mentioned are modern units that do not have the scraping earth.

Sarmajor: Yes the male plugs on the container are 5 pin earth neutral & 3 phases.
Thank everyone.
