CPS National was contracted to complete a project for the Victorian Emergency Services network to replace batteries at over 100 sites within a 150km radius of Melbourne. In addition, CPS National also conducted battery testing and site reporting.
There was a limited time frame and delivery of the project was not without its challenges. Some sites in the mountain regions within National Parks and Water boards had access issues, and others couldn’t be reached without the use of a 4WD. Changing weather conditions and the transport of large batteries to deliver, install and remove obsolete batteries was also difficult at times.
The Project Manager worked diligently to establish installation routes, work teams and vehicle requirements, as well as coordinate customers and suppliers for the execution of the job.
In the end, the project was delivered on time, met the proposed objectives and no safety issues were encountered.
