Project Details

Location: Brisbane Western Suburbs, QLD

Client: Powerlink

Our team completed the Richlands to Sumner Tee Transmission Line Refit for Powerlink in five months. This involved undertaking the refurbishment of 15 x 110kV Double Circuit Lattice Steel Transmission Line Towers for Powerlink in the Brisbane Western Suburbs, QLD.

The project scope included minor clearing and earthworks, the installation of ground earthing systems, strengthening of foundations, design and replacement of steel members and bolts, installation of anti-climb devices and signage, surface preparation and painting of the tower, and removal of previously applied hazardous paints (including asbestos infused and lead-based) including disposal.

The tower locations had a variety of challenges including; located within the rail corridor, located within busy highway median, located adjacent to residential homes and commercial businesses. Our environmental strategy included property owner liaison, weed management, soil water management and monitoring of compliance with the project environmental plan.

Planning of the works required significant planning and consultation of a large group of stakeholders.

This work was delivered to the satisfaction of Powerlink Queensland with no environmental incidents, no quality non-conformances and no lost-time injuries.

Key Challenges:
  • Environmental management
  • Minor clearing and earthworks
  • Ground earthing systems
  • Refurbishment: strengthening of foundations, design and replacement of steel members and bolts, installation of anti-climb devices and signage, surface preparation and painting of the tower, and removal of previously applied hazardous paints (including asbestos infused and lead-based) including disposal.
