Project Overview

ElectraNet has identified the need to replace 101 transformer bushings fitted on 18 power transformers across ElectraNet’s transmission network based on their condition. ElectraNet considers that there is only one technically and economically feasible option, which is to replace the end-of-life transformer bushings on a like-for-like basis.

On 22 August 2018 ElectraNet published a Project Specification Consultation Report (PSCR) under the Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T), as required by the National Electricity Rules clause 5.16.

ElectraNet welcomes written submissions on this PSCR. Submissions should be emailed to and are due on or before 14 November 2018.

Subject to submissions received on this PSCR, a Project Assessment Conclusions Report (PACR) is expected to be published by December 2018.

The PSCR can be downloaded here.
