Power Engineering for owners of private, high voltage networks
Consulting and owner’s engineering
We provide business case and options studies for private network owners at commercial and industrial facilities for customers who are conscientious about energy costs, regulatory compliance, and sustainable energy management. Combining innovation with our industry expertise in distribution networks, we can deliver privately owned network users with a turnkey solution, along with consulting studies that provide valuable insights into asset management objectives, ensuring facilities have maximum availability and perform reliably.
Our services include:
- Business case studies
- Costs and technology options
- Power system studies
- Energy auditing.
We offer owner’s engineering services to our commercial and industrial customers, providing contracts and project management support for our engineering, procurement, and construction projects. Our owner’s engineering team has expert technical knowledge in key areas related to network electrical systems infrastructure and are accredited professionals with a large portfolio of successfully completed projects.
Power engineering services
Our engineering services provide turnkey solutions for private network owners. We offer a range of power system studies, as well as safety engineering services such as Safety in Design (SiD) and Functional Safety Engineering. We have a team that is experienced in plant operations and design, to ensure all designs are tested and maintained through the safety lifecycle of the plant.
Grid connection applications
Our team is proficient in negotiating network connection agreements and facilitating technical compliance with network providers. We understand network augmentation and asset management of distribution networks, and we can manage all connection applications and discussion with the network service provider for augmentation or point of connection agreements.
Our services include:
- Network service provider connection agreements and negotiations
- Customer connection feasibility studies
- Generator performance standard and network service provider compliance monitoring
- Generator performance standard studies and AEMO connection process.
Electric vehicle charging stations
We are increasingly receiving requests for information about design and installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging points from local councils. Having recently installed EV sites in several spots around regional Victoria, we have good knowledge of the products available to best suit different locations. We can design and construct the charging point of supply and electrical site layout, including cable, conduit, transformer and charging station locations, determine appropriate circuit protection and negotiate supply capacity with the electrical authority.
Electrical system studies
We use power system software tools to analyse power systems for feasibility, connections, front end engineering and detailed design. Our studies software packages include PSS®E, PSS®SINCAL, ETAP® and PowerFactory.
We provide detailed design specifications for turnkey engineering, procurement and construction electrical and SCADA projects, or as owner’s engineering representatives. Our drafting team ensures all designs are managed from project initiation to handover to the owner. We maintain Australian and international engineering and quality standards to ensure compliance with local regulatory authorities and governing bodies.
