The Greerton 33kV switching station is critical for electricity supply to the Northern Tauranga region. It supplies substations in Omokoroa, Aongatete, Katikati, Kauri Point, the Bethlehem suburb, and Otumoetai.
Should a major asset failure occur at the station, it would mean major disruption to the network, and ultimately to your power supply.
Investment of $3.8m to replace our 33kV Greerton switching station with a new indoor 33kV switchboard. The project includes:
Site works, and construction of a new switch room building, replacing the outdoor 33KV switchgear with an indoor switchboard
New switchgear which is environmentally safe
Natural disaster proof protection – the new installation has been designed to modern seismic standards, and will offer protection against slips.
An enhanced power supply to the Tauranga region – greater flexibility of electricity supply, and modern equipment means the network is more resilient to unplanned outages. This means minimising disruption business and residential communities.
