ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of thermal grouts in the underground power transmission lines any types of construction. According to Guy Dickies, president of Constellation Group LLC, this element is used to transmit heat from underground electrical cables to the soil or rock that surrounds it. Moreover, it notes that a correct grouting operation begins at the preparation stages of a project.
