Belmore Park Zone Substation
Client: Energy Australia

Project Description
The Project involves the construction of the Belmore Park Zone Substation between Campbell Street, Pitt Street and Hay Street. The substation building consists of three basement levels, ground floor plus five floors. The zone substation is equipped with five transformers and a multi-section busbar enabling 132kV interconnection between the Haymarket Bulk Supply Point (BSP), the City South and Rose Bay zone substations and the Riley Street subtransmission switching station (STSS). The 132kV cables would be installed in the existing City South Cable Tunnel (CSCT), which runs directly beneath Campbell Street at a depth of 19 meters. A shaft and stub tunnel connection from Belmore Park Zone Substation would facilitate access to the CSCT to enable up to eight new feeders to be connected at the substation. The zone substation would act as a central point for the 11kV distribution network in the southern Sydney CBD.

blueVisions' Role

In addition to undertaking design review & providing site supervision, blueVisions was also responsible for the preparation of a strategic programme for Belmore Park Zone Substation for the client Enerserve (later Ausgrid). The programme identified the two options for project delivery:

  • Option 1: Stand alone covering the whole area
  • Option 2: Transformers N/S orientation double loaded (cooling tower)

After the award of contract and before project completion, Bluevisions was engaged by Ausgrid to assess Extension of Time claims. Bluevisions assessed the claims and produced a report, which facilitated the successful settlement and conclusion of the project.
