We are recognised as the pioneers of world first approaches to improve safety and efficiency.
Live Line Work
Our Network customers often require maintenance on the electrical grid to be completed without taking equipment out of service. Electrix has the specialist skills for this work and has pioneered the development of techniques and technologies to improve safety and efficiency.
We have unique capabilities that include the use of helicopters to complete live line works and innovations such as ‘live line go-karts’ and live line pole replacements. These have been well received by the industry and recognised as key contributors to the project efficiencies.
With full geographic coverage across both Australia and New Zealand we are able to deliver a complete range of services to our customer base.
Electrix has significant experience working with renewable energy sources and has completed works on some of the largest wind farms in the Southern Hemisphere. These complex projects bring together the engineering and construction expertise of Electrix.
We have delivered the construction and installation of lines for grid connection and the installation and commissioning of high end substation equipment and reticulation systems. Our capability and experience ensures these highly complex projects are completed on time and within budget.
Electrix has developed a specialised system of collecting electrical infrastructure condition data to improve our service to customers. Using hand held data loggers and our unique software on site we have delivered operational efficiencies, improved accuracy and rapid data analysis.
Safety is paramount across our operations. We have a high focus on safety and place significant importance on initial and ongoing training for our large workforce. Intensive planning and risk management processes ensure we can meet the challenges of working in extreme weather conditions, in environmentally sensitive areas, within tight time frames to deliver a safe and high quality outcome.
