Sims Metal, substation, 132 kV project
Connection to the local 11 kV or 33 kV network was not possible due to the voltage disturbance that this would introduce, so a connection was therefore proposed to the WPD 132 kV network which ran directly past the site.
With a 132 kV connection point established, Powersystems designed and constructed the required 132 kV substation and co-ordinated the connection works with WPD.
The new 132 kV substation compound and switch rooms were designed and constructed by Powersystems to suit the substation equipment.
Within the 132 kV substation Powersystems supplied and installed the following equipment:
- 1No 15MVA 132/11 kV transformer
- 132 kV circuit breakers
- 132 kV disconnectors
- 132 kV overhead busbar system
- 5 panels of 11 kV switchgear
- Auxiliary power transformer
- Protection panels
- Battery chargers
- 11 kV cables
- Building lighting and power
- Substation earthing
A remote 11 kV substation was also established 800 m from the 132 kV substation to act as the crusher motor substation.
