APD Engineering were contracted by PLP to engineer and design three new 1.5MVA and one 1MVA 11/0.433kV kiosk substations, powerline modifications and power and fibre optic cable reticulation for the Rio Tinto Wickham Accommodation Expansion.
APD provide a complete range of on-site field testing and commissioning services for power infrastructure. APD also offer tailored field engineering solutions and other niche services. For example, network audits, performance studies, troubleshooting and investigative support services.
The commissioning team comprises of electrical engineers and technicians with protection systems experience, proficient in conducting power system studies and the preparation of settings for Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED) for voltages up to 500kV. APD own a full suite of testing equipment covering the various tests commonly performed in an electrical environment.
Additionally, our engineers are very familiar with the design, operation and settings requirements for recognised device manufacturers, including GE, ALSTOM (formerly AREVA), SIEMENS, SEL, ABB, Schneider and RMS. This multi-relay skillset and design capability delivers project savings through the deployment of a single team.
To ensure our field engineers meet the project milestones, they are backed by our extensive pool of design and consulting engineers fully equipped with a comprehensive suite of engineering application and drafting software.
