Energex has finished a $2.9 million upgrade at the Kingston Substation which will benefit more than 15,000 homes and businesses in the local area.
The project involved installing two new replacement 33/11kV transformers at the Kingston Substation and installing various other electrical equipment to connect the new transformers to the existing electricity network.
The project has improved the reliability of power supply to the local area including Berrinba, Browns Plains, Chambers Flat, Crestmead, Drewvale, Heritage Park, Kingston, Logan Reserve, Loganlea, Marsden, Meadowbrook, Park Ridge, Park Ridge South, Waterford and Waterford West.
Energex’s Asset Manager Russell Cross said the upgrades were required to improve the reliability of electricity supply to the local area and to cater for future growth.
“Growth in the area has seen demand for electricity rise significantly over the past few years, and this project will ensure ongoing network reliability, especially in times of peak demand,” he said.
“The Kingston Substation upgrade includes newer and more modern electrical equipment which will ensure reliability well into the future.”
Energex thanked local residents and businesses for their patience as the network upgrade was completed.
This project is part of a five-year capital expenditure program being undertaken by Energex to upgrade the South East Queensland electricity network.
