Client: TasNetworks
Project: Boyer Substation Primary & Secondary Upgrade
Location: 1279 Boyer Rd, Boyer TAS 7140, Australia

Project Outline:
RBD Electrical completed the upgrade of existing TasNetworks assets and replacement of aged “end of life” assets to modernise the Boyer EHV Transmission substation to increase capacity and reliability into the future.

As the substation was live & in-service (and is Norske Skog’s single point of supply) several critical outages were undertaken, requiring a high level of planning, documentation and co-ordination of engineers, electrical workers, and commissioning staff. The longest outage was for 72 hrs, which involved a rotating shift around the clock, in which 2 weeks work was completed.

Works included:

  • New 110kv transformer, CT’s, Surge Arrestors, Disconnector and Post Insulators
  • New 6.6kv HV cables, SCADA system, earth mat / earthing system, transformer protection panels, SPEL tank and oilset-1000 panel, fibre infrastructure, DC distribution boards, feeder protection panel, VT skin panel.
  • Modifications to existing feeder skins / switch gear / DC systems.
