Project Overview

Client: Airservices Australia

Location: Tennant Creek, Northern Australia

Project scope 

2 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.

Unique features 

All of the unique items for installation and safety were transported to the site via Brisbane, Queensland. By following and re-using existing underground services that were not compliant with regulations, a systematic approach was adopted to utilise these underground trunking services under runways and established roads. New sections were also required to be opened up and rectified in accordance with regulations.
