Moss­man power to the peo­ple

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

MOSS­MAN res­i­dents and busi­nesses have wel­comed Er­gon En­ergy’s con­nec­tion for the town’s power sup­ply to the hospi­tal feeder to im­prove re­li­a­bil­ity.

Rocky Point Port Views Es­tate Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion sec­re­tary Mal­colm Mckel­lar said the move was an­other step in the right di­rec­tion.

“We are pleased to see that Er­gon’s com­mit­ment to re­con­nect all of Moss­man to the Moss­man Hospi­tal feeder has been achieved,” Mr Mckel­lar said.

“This will go a long way to re­mov­ing the north­ern end of town from ex­po­sure to fail­ures on the Cooya loop (Cas­sowary-cooya-fox­ton Bridge) por­tion of the Dain­tree feeder, and pro­vid­ing ad­di­tional re­dun­dancy to the Dain­tree feeder north of the Fox­ton Bridge in the event of fail­ures on that Cooya loop,” Mr Mckel­lar said

Er­gon’s man­ager for re­gional ser­vices north­ern op­er­a­tions Ge­off Bowes also con­firmed Er­gon’s un­der­tak­ing to look at how Er­gon could even­tu­ally move the re­gion on to the “bul­let-proof” 132kv feeder sup­ply.
