Cowell Electric - taking Power Beyond the horizon
Broken Hill – Honeymoon Mine 33kV Distribution Line
Robin Johnson Engineering
Cowell Electric recently completed the construction of a 33kV Distribution power line combining Sureline round steel and Steel/Concrete Stobie poles.
The project consisted of erection of over 400 poles and the stringing of 90 kilometres utilising “Neon and Hydrogen” conductors.
Significant rock was encountered through the Thackaringa hills between Broken Hill and Cockburn where a 450mm diameter rock drill was employed to avoid any costly delays in the construction program. The project was completed on time and within budget.
