Hoon Hay Zone Substation upgrade

Hoon Hay

Installation of new 11kV switchgear at Orion’s Hoon Hay Zone Substation is a major project underway in early 2020.

The new switches replace switchgear installed in the late 60s and early 70s with modern, environmentally equipment that meets modern safety standards.

Here two Connetics crew, Willie Schnetler, on the ground, and Jamie McGill standing, thread underground cables through to the new air insulated switches that are the first of their kind to be installed in Orion’s network.
