Selected Civil Infrastructure Projects
EvoEnergy Underground Electricity Service Upgrades 2017 – 2018
In September 2017 BMCA was approached by EvoEnergy for assistance in surveilling and providing engineering advice on the civil construction operations associated with the upgrading of electricity services.
After a number of issues with damage to underground services from civil contractors undertaking Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) work on behalf of EvoEnergy, they decided that specialist civil construction expertise may assist in reducing the risk of damage and BMCA were the “go-to” solution.
The first two projects for BMCA assistance are to increase the power supply to substations in Gungahlin and Barton where current capacity urgently requires augmentation to minimise risk of power outages. Both projects are to be completed by April 2018.
