FLO JV was selected to build the central section of the Thames Tideway Tunnel in London, UK, and contracted Ampcontrol to assist with the provision of emergency back-up power.
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.
Containing: Transformers, Substations, Flameproof equipment, Switchgear, Starters, Switchrooms, Rubber Cables, XLPE Cables and Power Generation.
For nearly 50 years Ampcontrol has designed, manufactured and delivered integrated electrical solutions that improve safety, maintain efficient coal mining operations and meet stringent regulatory requirements. From our humble beginnings to being recognised as an industry leader in electrical solutions, we have consistently ensured our products meet the expectations of our customers in terms of safety, performance, quality, technical excellence, reliability, efficiency and cost effectiveness.
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.
Transformers are highly efficient electrical devices with long life cycles. A transformer built for high efficiency and minimal upkeep will have a higher initial capital cost. But in an environment of decreased capital spending, the economic benefits of purchasing a lower first cost standard transformer compared with a high efficiency unit are worth examining.
As Ampcontrol continues to tailor our approach to transformer design and manufacture, our transformer design engineers are increasingly incorporating ester dielectric fluids, a key technical and environmental advancement occurring in the Australian transformer market.
We are proud that our team has led the way and created innovative solutions such as the world’s first 11kV AFC longwall system, Intrinsically Safe LED lighting, the first integrated protection relay for mining and wide bandwidth earth leakage relays to protect and understand your electrical system.
Ampcontrol specialise in power distribution, tunnelling communication systems plus emergency and safety management. The strength of our innovative solutions lies in our specialist engineers who are committed to discovering, developing and implementing market leading technology.
