Powering ‘The Cloud’
The future of the internet, file sharing and storage is within ‘The Cloud’ – a world of online internet storage. To store this information, the largest data storage centre in the southern hemisphere is in Huntingwood, NSW. Housing billions of files of data created on laptops, mobiles and other devices across Australia every day. ‘The Cloud’ will suck up as much power as the city of Wollongong each year. To accommodate this huge consumption of power, Memba Civil played a key role in delivering twin circuits of 132KV feeders, connecting from the existing overhead network in Eastern Creek into underground transmission and under the Western Motorway to a newly constructed Endeavour Energy substation – powering the data centre.
Memba Civil’s role in powering ‘The Cloud’ involved
- Trenching, conduit laying and installation of 132KV twin circuits
- Assisted with twin 230m Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) bores under the M4 Western Motorway at depths up 12m – connecting Eastern Creek & Huntingwood electricity supply
- Installation of pre-cast joint bays, and link box pits
- 6.6km of 132kV high voltage cable installation linking overhead transmission to new substation
- 2.2km of fibre optic cable installation
Memba Civil through Diona Pty Ltd was involved in the successful delivery of a major asset to Wilken Services and Endeavour Energy to power the largest data centre in the southern hemisphere.
It couldn’t have been put together without the work of Aiden Galvin and his Memba Civil crew, S&R Pace HDD Drilling, Barry McGee and Joshua Maltese – special thanks for all the hard teamwork.
