Beaconsfield Road Maintenance

Line crews were servicing power lines in Otipua.

Trucks, utes, and orange cones were lining Beaconsfield Road during the last few weeks while NETcon’s line crews were working on a large maintenance project.

The project south of Timaru is part of the routine maintenance program in order to provide stable power supply in the area. The project included a variety of upgrade and repair work: Transformers were bolted and secured to cross arms as a preventative measure for earthquakes. Modern drop-out fuses were installed to replace the old-style 11kV isolating fuses. Brown porcelain insulator discs were upgraded to glass discs as they proof to be more resistant.

The on-site work took three weeks and involved:

  • crews of 24 people, including four line mechanics from the West Coast;
  • fleet of two line trucks, six utes, and four elevated bucket trucks; and
  • traffic management provided by SJ Allan.

The project will be finished by mid December.
