Major works to power network

Major works to power network soon to commence
11 September 2018

Major works will soon commence to upgrade the power network in Nhulunbuy to improve the town’s industry standard power network.

These works will commence on Sunday 23 September and continue through to the end of November.

The works will improve the reliability of power supply by installing isolators throughout the power network. Once installed, the isolators will enable the power network to be divided into zones, ensuring future scheduled maintenance to the power network is able to take place with minimal impact to the town network.

What you can expect

• Power outages will be 6-8 hours in duration, between the hours of 8:00am – 4:00pm
• Your property will be affected multiple times over the duration of the project.
• Works will take place seven days a week.
• Both residential and business properties will be impacted.
• Minor trenching may occur on footpaths.
• Works will include the use of heavy mobile equipment on streets and driveways.
• Please observe the traffic management in place. Vehicle users and pedestrians are encouraged to take extra precaution during this period.

What we will do to minimise the impact to you

• Where possible, properties will not be affected for more than one consecutive day at a time.
• Where possible, outages affecting businesses will be minimised.
• For schools and essential service providers, where possible, power interruptions will be scheduled outside of hours.

How to find out when your property will be impacted

Impacted areas will be identified via a zone map. To view which zone your property is located within, please refer to the zone map on our website.
