After the existing 1960’s 11kV Submarine cable crossing the Northern Wairoa River faulted, Northpower quickly needed a new solution to ensure reliability of supply for the Dargaville and Ruawai areas.
Our project team installed ducts across the bridge – so we were able to remove cable across swampland, meaning better reliability and lower maintenance costs.
We’re really proud of the innovative approach to problem solving from all our Northpower team members as well as NZTA and sub-contractors during this complex job.
These innovations included:
This project ended up being completed ahead of time without any incidents, and we had zero customer complaints throughout the project. Another job well done!
