The Systems installed by Stowe Australia for the project consisted of the following installation, termination and commissioning scope of works as follows:-
An increase in the electrical load demand due to the reconfiguration of the existing terminal layout and the additional electrical equipment, necessitated the modification of the existing electrical power distribution system. The modification included the decommissioning of an existing HV/LV substation, and the establishment of 4 new HV/LV substations.
The establishment of the new substations included the installation and commissioning of a new 11KV HV Open Ring network across the 62 Hectare Site. As part of the HV system Stowe Australia was contracted to take delivery and construct four elevated transportable buildings complete with a new in ground earthing system. The transportable buildings were constructed to house the existing HV switchgear, which was relocated from the existing substation, four of new LV Main Switchboards and one of the site’s main Communication Rooms.
As part of the HV installation Stowe Australia installed, terminated and commissioning three new 1500kVA 11000/433V HV/LV Kiosk substations, relocated two existing outdoor 2000kVA/2500kVA 11000/433V transformers, one of 2500kVA VAR Compensator System and undertook modification of one existing 750kVA 11000/433V Kiosk Substation.
Stowe Australia also had the difficult task of extending and redirecting five of the existing HV supplies for the ship to shore cranes, whilst working within the live and operating terminal.
