Elsternwick upgrades

The first of two projects underway in Elsternwick has a budget of $3.2m, and will see a new Wilsons 33MVA 66/11kV transformer installed in Elsternwick to replace the existing transformer, helping to ensure the supply of energy to homes and businesses in the area. The previous transformer has already been removed, and additional work to protect the system from fire and reduce noise in the community is underway.

The second has seen the replacement of aging circuit breakers in the area with a new 11kV ABB switchboard. We have also extended and improved the existing control building, as well as upgrading the security fencing and access control to the site.
