An excavator was tramming along a haul road when the boom of the excavator made contact with an energised 11kVA overhead powerline. The operator noticed an electrical arc above the cab and reversed from the powerline. One phase of the powerline was severed and dropped to the ground in a couple of locations, causing a small grass fire.
