Leading engineering services firm Verbrec has been awarded a contract to complete the electrical work associated with an upgrade to the electrical infrastructure at the Australian Air Force’s Woomera Range complex in South Australia.
Verbrec’s company, LogiCamms, was awarded the contract by AXIS Construction, which is Aurecon’s main contractor.
LogiCamms will supply, install and commission a new 11kV switch room and four 11kV kiosks, along with the associated electrical infrastructure.
This reach is an important first step in modernizing Woomera’s electrical infrastructure and is critical to current and future operations of the defense base.
AXIS Construction managing director Brent Bunting said he chose LogiCamms as the preferred contractor based on the company’s extensive experience in the defense sector and in particular its knowledge of the Woomera electrical infrastructure site. .
Work on the project is well advanced with all major equipment set-up complete and fabrication underway.
Verbrec’s experienced electrical construction team will soon mobilize to the site to begin site work.
