An experienced team with a history of success

For the past twelve years, we have been the main provider of both equipment and personnel for Tasnetworks and Tasnetworks Communications. As one of around six contractors in their contractor pool, we have installed over 120 km of underground electrical cabling and associated hardware, including substations, streetlights and more. Since Tasnetworks moved into the communication field, we have also handled the installation of optic fibres throughout the north and north-west of the state on their behalf. We have laid 2 kilometres of optic cable from the East Tamar Highway to the Basslink Converter Station near Georgetown, as well as three kilometres along Country Club Avenue to the Launceston Casino.

We have also laid 2 kilometres through Launceston's CBD, bringing Tasnetworks' services to a number of businesses. As a part of our strong working relationship with Tasnetworks, eleven members of our team are Tasnetworks Instructed Persons, while nine are Tasnetworks Persons in charge.

We have also completed a range of successful construction projects, such as Gas Let Down stations at Bell Bay, Westbury, Carrick, Longford, Devonport and Wynyard for Agility. Other works undertaken for Agility have included the installation of 5 kilometres of 125 mm P.E gas main into Bell Bay and 160 mm of P.E. gas main into Comalco.

Powerco has also made use of our skills and expertise, and we have successfully completed both service connections and gas network extensions across the north of the state for them. Additionally, we have been contracted to supply both equipment and personnel for Telstra's pit and pipe work, cable hauling and network maintenance needs. We also have Telstra Interconnect Contractor Accreditation.

We have also been involved in the roll-out of NBN, installing a major pit and pipe network and carrying out optic fibre hauling in Scottsdale and Smithton. This consisted of a five-kilometre conduit run, as well as hauling optic fibres through Weldborough Pass.

We have also completed a one and a half conduit run at Pyengana, as well as 7 kilometres of pit and pipe network in Deloraine for stage two of the roll out. Both of these conduit runs were completed through environmentally sensitive native forest regions.
