CG2 Installation

Client

ANSTO

Location

Australia

Overview

The CG2 installation was an essential high-risk manoeuvre carried out within a nuclear environment at the ANSTO facility. The manoeuvre involved the removal and storage of an old shutter and in-pile plug and the installation of a new in-pile plug-guide assembly and shutter. blueVisions managed the preparation of a very descriptive and detailed manual to carry out the manoeuvre and then worked closely with the engineers to develop an integrated schedule for the six-week execution phase. blueVisions maintained a high level of quality assurance during the execution phase from the CG2 Control Room, which was located within close vicinity of the manoeuvre. This involved extensive management and administrative support including the development and implementation of templates, facilitating meetings and lessons learnt between the day and night shift and tracking the status of the works. The accurate recording of information ensured a seamless transition between the two teams and the successful installation of CG2 within a high-risk environment.

Newcastle University Residential Low Voltage Consolidation

Client

University of Newcastle

Location

Newcastle, NSW Australia

Overview

The Newcastle University Residential Low Voltage Consolidation project encompassed the rationalising of low voltage supplies from the network to twelve separate buildings to be fed from one central supply point. blueVisions’ programming and planning ensured the required works to be staged to provide the client with greater control in the delivery of each phase along with rigid timeframes to mitigate the risk of cost blow out in relation to back up power generation.

Project

Belmore Park Zone Substation

Client

Energy Australia

Location

Australia

Overview

The Project involves the construction of the Belmore Park Zone Substation between Campbell Street, Pitt Street and Hay Street. The substation building consists of three basement levels, ground floor plus five floors. The zone substation is equipped with five transformers and a multi-section busbar enabling 132kV interconnection between the Haymarket Bulk Supply Point (BSP), the City South and Rose Bay zone substations and the Riley Street subtransmission switching station (STSS). The 132kV cables would be installed in the existing City South Cable Tunnel (CSCT), which runs directly beneath Campbell Street at a depth of 19 meters. A shaft and stub tunnel connection from Belmore Park Zone Substation would facilitate access to the CSCT to enable up to eight new feeders to be connected at the substation. The zone substation would act as a central point for the 11kV distribution network in the southern Sydney CBD.
