Gold Coast’s Mudgeeraba substation receives revamp

Australia, Queensland: Australian electricity transmission operator Powerlink has completed the upgrade of Mudgeeraba substation located at Varsity Lakes in Gold Coast, Queensland.

The $18.2 million project that has been completed before the Commonwealth Games included an installation of a new 275/110 kV 250 MVA transformer, fire walls and noise wall, reports Power Technology.

Additional works included 275 kV bus extension, isolator installation and gantry extension, demolition and rebuild of the 110 kV feeder and transformer bays and disassembly and removal of the redundant transformer.

The investment is said to be part of the Queensland government’s objective to provide additional capacity and ensure a reliable electricity supply network for the games in Gold Coast.
