Er­gon sub­mits plans for Moss­man to Dain­tree power up­grade

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

RES­I­DENTS in Moss­man through to Dain­tree Vil­lage are one step closer to a more re­li­able source of elec­tric­ity with Er­gon En­ergy com­mis­sion­ing a de­tailed de­sign and con­struc­tion plans for a re­de­vel­op­ment of the Moss­man sub­sta­tion. The plan will al­low for ac­cu­rate cost­ing and will be sub­mit­ted to Er­gon’s In­vest­ment Re­view Com­mit­tee be­fore the end of the year, and if ap­proved, con­struc­tion could be­gin next year. The up­grade will see 2955 cus­tomers lo­cated in the greater Moss­man/Dain­tree dis­trict put onto a 132,000-volt line. They are cur­rently on a 66,000 volt line from the Table­lands.

While the process is con­tin­u­ing Er­gon has been busy work­ing on the cur­rent lines to im­prove re­li­a­bil­ity, in­clud­ing in­stalling high volt­age switch­ing equip­ment in sev­eral lo­ca­tions.
