Hinuera Bypass Successfully Commissioned

The Transpower project to replace the ‘live’ substation at Karapiro achieved a key milestone at the end of June. The Hinuera Bypass was successfully commissioned, ensuring supply to the surrounding communities is maintained whilst the re-configuration works at the Karapiro substation are completed. Edison are actively involved in this project, providing collaborative resources in the following areas:

  1. Project technical support
  2. Outage planning and contingency planning
  3. Commissioning
  4. Key stakeholder engagement and coordination

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.
