Synlait's Milk Factory expansion required an upgrade of their 66kV transformer. With a short window of two-weeks, Connetics replaced the large transformer, which required a variety of our services due to the complex network environment (civil, cable installation, jointing, protection, commissioning).
Connetics successfully planned and completed the work on time, working with network owner Orion upon completion to install the backup protection with minimal disruption to the network.
The project also included a variation to install and commission four 2.5MVA Statcom Voltage Support Units. Connetics responded to the challenge and even assisted in the install design aspects.
