Have confidence that your project will be successfully completed with our experience and commercial approach
Our agile business model is combined with a commercially-aware approach, allowing us flexibility to explore different commercial and technical solutions with our clients. We have the capacity to provide a tailored package of services that support each client’s specific business and commercial drivers.
ElectraNet owns and operates more than 5,600 kilometres of transmission line that operate at voltages of 275 kV, 132 kV and 66 kV, as well as 91 high-voltage substations with modern centralised monitoring, control and switching facilities.
We take pride in our experience and proven track record of successfully delivering projects. There are a variety of factors that contribute to our consistent success.
Our one-stop-shop service means that clients can entrust us with the end-to-end delivery and management of electricity infrastructure assets.
This includes planning, funding, designing, constructing, commissioning, operating and maintaining the assets. This results in streamlined, consistent processes for the life of the asset.
ElectraNet is committed to collaborating with our clients to ensure efficient and cost-effective delivery of the required electrical assets.
We tirelessly work towards understanding our client’s needs and developing a tailored delivery strategy that carefully considers key client drivers.
We own and operate $2.5 billion worth of transmission assets and have a strong investment-grade credit rating – Moody’s Baa1 and Standard & Poor’s BBB+ equivalent.
This enables us to finance electrical infrastructure projects in the generation, mining, oil and gas and industrial sectors at highly competitive rates of return.
Every project has unique needs and challenges. ElectraNet’s planning, design, delivery, and operating models use practical innovation for ease of construction and long-term reliability, while minimising long-term costs. We incorporate ‘whole of life’ client and project requirements into the process early, so that we can identify obstacles before beginning a project.
We understand the value in developing a client-focused culture, which relies on gaining a thorough understanding of our clients’ key drivers and needs.
We strive to work in partnership with our clients to achieve outcomes that benefit all stakeholders.
We have undertaken a significant number of electricity network connections in the National Electricity Market in the past 10 years and have a proven track record of successfully working with our clients on regulated and commercial negotiations. Our processes and procedures have been tailored to provide the optimal solution for our clients’ needs, while maintaining governance at the appropriate standards. All of our projects to deliver client solutions have been delivered on time and in a cost-effective manner.
We have established long-term relationships with our supply chain.
These strong relationships have resulted in reliable, low risk, cost-efficient, and on-time delivery for our clients across Australia.
Landholder liaison and stakeholder engagement
Electricity transmission assets have a long life span, so ElectraNet consults with stakeholders in the community to ensure we take concerns and feedback about projects into consideration when planning for one. The investment made in community engagement at the start of a project is crucial to maintaining positive and productive relationships over the asset’s long life cycle.
We have developed an extensive management system that is scalable, tried and tested across our high-voltage and telecommunications network. This system integrates user and functional requirement definition, engineering authority, detail requirements management, verification, testing acceptance, and validation for engineering service delivery. We also use a strong base structure to standardise design and provide consistency in delivery outcomes.
Design and construction
ElectraNet specialises in high-voltage substations, underground cable systems, and overhead lines.
We have the experience and skills needed for detailed engineering and design, cost estimation, procurement, construction, installation, testing and commissioning, operation, and maintenance.
ElectraNet has very strong working relationships with the Australian Energy Regulator (AER), the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) and other key stakeholders. Our unique experience allows us to assist our clients with regulatory and commercial negotiations, and successfully connect them to the network.
