CPS National was contracted to complete a project for Airservices Australia in Tennant Creek, NT.
The project required the installation of two x 1.2km runs of opposite direction 950V AC underground electrical cable from a central MSB to step up and step down transformers. Connection and commission to navigation systems was also required.
To complete these works, all unique items for installation were transported via Brisbane over a four day journey, with larger items dispatched from South Australia.
Due to the heavily regulated and critical nature of the Aviation industry, working on existing essential services can be challenging. For this reason, a systematic approach when utilising existing underground trunking services under airport runways and established roads was adopted. When the underground services simply did not exist, new sections were opened up to identify the issue and were rectified in accordance with regulations.
Ultimately the project was delivered ahead of schedule and to compliance standards.
