Hinuera Bypass Successfully Commissioned

Transpower is conducting a major project to replace the ‘live’ substation at Karapiro. To mitigate the risk of loss of supply to rural communities, a bypass was built at Hinuera to ensure supply is maintained whilst the re-configuration works at the Karapiro substation are completed. The Hinuera bypass was successfully commissioned in June. Edison are actively involved in this ongoing project, providing collaborative resources in the following areas:

  • Project technical support
  • Risk management and contingency planning
  • Outage planning
  • Independent commissioning
  • Stakeholder management

The Edison team is providing continued support as the project continues.

“Many thanks for all of your efforts to get to this point…and the site team is so ably supported by our engineers and Edison who contribute so much to making the commissionings happen. Thank you all from Transpower.” – Jackie Snelius, Project Manager Transpower.
