Powercor & CitiPower Construction and Maintenance Services

Electrix has been consistently undertaking construction and maintenance activities on both the Powercor and CitiPower distribution networks for a period which now extends beyond twelve years. This successful long-term relationship was first formalised in 2001 with the signing of a ‘Period Works Partnering Agreement’ with Powercor. That initial agreement has subsequently been successfully renewed and extended on a number of occasions with the latest contract agreement running to October 2014 with a further option to extend.

CitiPower Public Lighting Maintenance

Under this contract Electrix undertakes maintenance services on all public lighting assets within the CitiPower network area in the Melbourne CBD and inner suburban areas. 

This important contract was one of the earliest successes for Electrix in Australia. Due to the ongoing good work from the field crews, the contract has been extended on several occasions and following the most recent contract renewal now extends over a period in excess of 15 years.

Glenelg Tram 3
Project Type: Transport

Glenelg Tram Overpass - South Road

This Glenelg Tram Overpass project was a major initiative by the South Australian Government to both improve the Glenelg tram service and reduce congestion on the busy South Road corridor.

The development of the overpass required the construction of a parallel temporary running track in July, and the subsequent construction of the new permanent track once the overpass bridge was complete.

As main contractor for the project, McConnell Dowell brought Electrix on board to install the overhead traction power supply and provide associated electrical installations. The strong focus by Electrix on quality and safety were key factors in our appointment.

Arnotts Biscuits Installation works

The client, Arnott’s Biscuits engaged Electrix to undertake electrical and control systems work associated with the installation of new biscuit lines L4 and L7.  The work was complex brown-field work in an operational plant and needed to be undertaken on a very tight installation schedule through the 2013/2014 Christmas/New Year break.

The installation program required two crews working a 24 hr schedule to meet the Arnott’s milestones.  The work was completed on time and within budget with a commendation received from the client regarding the excellent work achieved throughout the project
