Consider a minimum distance of 150 mm between LV cables and all other cables for confined spaces such as the engine room, accommodations, etc. Spacing between LV cables and all other cables in non-confined spaces shall be maintained at 300 mm. If all confined spaces are maintained at 300 mm, it will have a cost impact (increase).
