APD Engineering conducted detailed earthing studies as per AS/NZS 4853:2012 including; EPR, LFI and EMF hazard assessments as well as review of proposed cathodic protection and other gas pipeline ancillary services (below and above ground). Site testing works were also undertaken to validate the detailed CDEGS modelling results.
Our earthing design team have proven experience in Greenfield and Brownfield projects and have completed detailed design and field testing activities for a wide range of clients from utility (transmission and distribution) through to mining, land development and railway sectors.
APD Engineering was requested by Energy Made Clean to complete a HV submission to satisfy the Western Australian electrical requirements for the Northam solar farm.
Visual inspection and testing of the lightning protection, earthing and bonding systems for the Point Lookout Wastewater Treatment Plant. The project came about due to multiple instrument and electric motor failures, attributed to insufficient earthing of the instruments.
APD Engineering were engaged to provide a certified electrical design for supply of Eaton Apartments in Wickham, Newcastle. A chamber substation was selected due to apparent space restrictions to site. Liaison with client, architect, structural engineers and site electricians was part of the process used to develop the final solution.
APD Engineering was engaged to undertake Insulation Coordination and Reactor Switching Studies for a 275kV substation in South Australia. Advanced studies based on PSCAD/EMTDC modelling were carried out to ensure the safe operation of the substation through surge protective devices.
