Over the last few weeks, SA Power Networks completed the first ACCC conductor installation in Australia in Adelaide. Adelaide is the capital city of the state of South Australia, and the fifth-most populous city of Australia, home to more than 75 percent of the South Australian population.
With the support of Ten Group Australia, and CTC Global’s Master Installer, Bill Percy, SAPN installed 623 kcmil (315.5 mm^2) Lisbon size ACCC conductor on their Morphette Vale East to Onkapringa 66 kV line. This was a reconductor project.
Powercom grips, Hubbell pulling socks, Berland reel stands and Tesmec tensioners were used with no issues. Taihan provided the ACCC conductor.
Bill Percy was very impressed with SAPN’s crew, supervisors and equipment and looks forward to returning in the near future to support additional projects.
