GIS and Processing Substations for BHPIO

August 2014

The GIS and Processing Substations for BHPIO project involved the supply of 2 x GIS (Gas Insulated Switchgear) 66KV Sub Stations and 2 x Protection Relay and Panel Switch Rooms.

In order to meet the stringent installation requirements of the GIS switchgear, substantial structural compliance was required in the construction of the transportable buildings. Nilsen worked closely with the client and our builder to meet these requirements. Each building on completion weighed in excess of 120 T and was transported in one piece from Perth to Port Hedland (1700 km). The building size was 7.5m x 25m long x 5m long.
