Project Details

Client : UEA
Type : Chamber Substation Earth Grid
Date : January 2017
Scope of project:
Supply and installation of separate earth grid for Ausgrid Chamber Substation including:
  • Drilling 5.4m electrodes in the level 3 basement of the building
  • Supplying and installing specialised galvanized risers and draw-in boxes to accommodate 70mm2 XLPE cable to be taken to the ground floor level.
Challenge: Installing the earth grid components required specialised drilling equipment. Earthing Solutions compact 105 drill rig proved to be the perfect fit for the job being purpose-built for such installations. Installing the galvanized risers in the basement was particularly challenging due to the confined area.

Result: The project was completed successfully to the client’s satisfaction.
