The Katoomba Telephone Telstra Exchange required the installation of new internal equipment and air conditioning requiring a connection of additional electricity supply. Application was made for upgrade of supply to Endeavour Energy who advised the Exchange would require the installation of a new padmount substation on site. Edgewater Connections was engaged as the Level 3 ASP to provide investigation services and if required, a Level 3 ASP design to establish the upgrade in electrical supply.
Edgewater Connections visited the site and reviewed the existing overhead electrical network assets and supply capacity and through proving the connection arrangement as suitable for the upgrade and further negotiation with Endevaour Energy we obtained a permission to connect the additional electrical power without establishment of a new substation.
Edgewater Connections provided the Telephone Authority Exchange substantial cost savings and minimal downtime.
