Alert 04 – 30 Electrical Troubleshooting Incident


A problem was experienced with a main engine-cooling pump. The electrician was asked to check the electrical supply to the cooling pump motor. The electrician opened the Motor Control Center panel and proceeded to check the fuses with his multi-meter on the Ohms scale. During his tests the probe from the meter shorted across fuses 2 and 3 causing flash burns to the electricians hands; it also blacked out the rig due to consequential reasons.
