As far as I know this supply is 3 phase delta 22kV with no fixed grounding of the transformer winding. I hope we may get some response here. thanks

Until now, it is still not repaired.

I did hope this would be something different, and make them look at it. Obviously not.
How dangerous might this be? Probably worst for the transformer close to. I do not use to stand and lean to those poles in bad weather. :-)

I could not resist to share this picture. It is not by code! When you biuld a house and a neighbor has their drop running over your property, you temporarily fix the wire in a tree, cuts down the pole, and builds the house with the wire going trough! crazy Then you may get it solved when you get the powercompany to connect your house, and hopefully just pay for one visit. smile Ill guess the risk never has been evaluated, but this is a cable with 2 wires, 230V between, and approx 127 V to ground.
