Aurora Pole Replacement Programme
Infratec has been engaged by Aurora Energy to deliver on its Fast Track programme, which is a large pole replacement project working in Dunedin, Central Otago and Queenstown Lakes. The Fast Track programme will use a range of methods, from repair to complete replacement, using the best available option to fix the problem:
- Replace the old pole with a new one to modern design standards
- Repair or reinforce a pole using an independently verified method
- Retest the pole using an independently verified testing method and where assessed as sound, update its condition assessment
- Convert the overhead line to underground where retaining an overhead line is not practical
- Support the pole using a temporary fix until a permanent solution is possible.
