Case Study – Ampcontrol Hire Fleet: Powering Sydney’s WestConnex

Utilising its extensive hire fleet, Ampcontrol is helping to ease congestion and connect communities by powering Sydney’s WestConnex, the largest transport infrastructure project in Australia.

Ampcontrol undertook the design, supply and commissioning of a complete electrical system from Ausgrid’s 11kV point of supply, to surface and underground facilities across the new M4 WestConnex tunnelling sites.

Tunnelling Solutions

Ampcontrol designs, manufactures and delivers cost effective and integrated electrical solutions for tunnelling and infrastructure projects that improve safety, efficiency and flexibility.Our proven engineering and manufacturing experience has enabled us to integrate our wide variety of product streams into customised turnkey solutions for tunnelling and infrastructure projects around the globe. We are a single source provider of power distribution, automation and HV service solutions.

Asset Management Solutions

Engaging Ampcontrol as your asset management partner means continuity of technical support from the OEM and a commitment to making sure the equipment runs as it is supposed to, doesn’t breakdown, and is statutory compliant. We know the operational value of what we design and manufacture which is why we are focused on optimising the equipment you have invested in and ensuring operational availability.

Case Study – High Integrity Isolation System

Automated isolation systems are becoming widely used to provide high integrity isolation solutions that improve productivity and reduce manual handling. Traditional isolation procedures in underground coal mines require connection and disconnection of high voltage electrical cables to be carried out by trained and competent electricians who have obtained a switching permit to perform work.
