NT Government: Investing in the Territory’s power grid

03 Apr 2024 9:27 AM | Anonymous

The Territory Labor Government is continuing to invest in our power grid with the upgrade of a key substation which will meet future electricity supply demands and support business.

Work to upgrade the Trevor Horman Substation at Berrimah is underway, which provides electricity to the Berrimah and Wishart industrial areas.

The functional and concept designs for the $55.3 million project have been completed and work has commenced on detailed design phase.

The design and construction contract for the project has been awarded to Darwin based company ESPEC.

Civil works are expected to begin on the site in August and construction will progress over the next two years.

The work includes installation of new 66kV AIS switchyard, 66kV power transformers, construction of new control building, new 11kV switchboard, new 11kV reactor banks and associated secondary systems.

Quotes attributable to the Minister for Essential Services Kate Worden:

“The upgrade of the Trevor Horman Substation will ensure the growing industrial areas of Berrimah and Wishart will have reliable power supply into the future.

“The Territory Labor Government can make this investment into our power grid because we own our assets like Power and Water and Territory Generation.

“Make no mistake, the CLP will sell Power and Water and Territory Generation just like they did with the Port of Darwin and TIO.”
