Kurnell South Zone substation in Sydney receiving a revamp

Australia, Sydney: Australian electricity company Ausgrid is performing the final stage of work on the replacement of 1961 Kurnell Zone substation in southern Sydney.

As part of the project, two 37.5 MVA power transformers were installed and successfully energised last week, and crews will now be working on the 11 kV power lines running throughout Kurnell preparing for their transfer to the new substation, reports T&D World.

The new substation located on Captain Cook Drive will supply the Kurnell peninsula and provide future interconnection with Cronulla Zone substation to increase capacity for and improve reliability in Cronulla and Woolooware.

Ausgrid’s electricity network supplies power to 1.6 million homes and businesses across Sydney, the Central Coast and the Hunter.
