Para-Brinkworth-Davenport Hazard Mitigation
This project will replace all "safety valve" cross-arms, porcelain insulators and line hardware that are in poor condition along the Para to Brinkworth to Davenport 275kV transmission line to ensure its ongoing safe operation and to extend the technical life of the transmission line. Some structures will also be replaced to raise conductor clearances.
All “safety valve” cross-arms are being replaced to maintain compliance with safety standards. All insulators will be replaced at the same time to minimise the risks associated with failure of the existing porcelain insulators that are in poor condition, and to provide a consistent age profile for all insulators on the line.
Construction commenced in June 2015.
Planned Energisation: December 2018
