Inspection report on a transformer.

The text is on a very poor fax copy, so I may be reading it wrong - I'd be very grateful for any pointers!

Da das alte massehaltige Zuleitungskabel undicht ist, es kommt zu Masseaustritt, erfolgte nur für uns eine Isolationsmessung des Kabels, Zuleitung zum Trenner und from Trenner zum Transformator.

I can't work out what this 'Masse' is that's leaking out. Although it could be just another one of those 'bad head days'!

Thanks in advance

Explanation:

Thanks Marcus, I think you may have just saved my life (this has to go off about five minutes ago!). I was getting confused by all this Mass and Masse, and assumed that the Masse that it was holding was the stuff that was leaking out, if you see what I mean.

Thanks again
