(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Project Number: EC.11733
Estimated Cost: $11.8m
Required Completion Date: 2017
Project requirement and timing
ElectraNet%s asset management policy is built around asset condition monitoring, with a large portion of this analysis currently supported by online intelligent monitoring devices. The online condition monitoring devices predominantly comprise microprocessors, sensors and communications devices.
Specialist electronic items usually have a defined usable life (10+ years) due to reliability issues with the electronics and the fact that rapid technology advancements generally cause older electronic devices to become obsolete and in most cases incompatible with newer technologies, and newer operating systems.
The majority of ElectraNet%s Primary Plant online condition monitoring equipment is now at the end of its usable life and will require complete or partial replacement or refurbishment.
The replacement strategy is generally a like for like replacement of all devices (to the latest available version) with exception of the Power System Performance Monitor (PSPM) where a new brand is required as a replacement due to the obsolescence of the existing technology.
Replacement of this obsolete equipment will support the continuation of network monitoring to provide data for fault investigation, power quality monitoring, condition assessment and reliability measures as required by the Rules, ElectraNet s fault investigation processes and transmission system operation.
This project is required to address the Rules capital expenditure objective to maintain the quality, reliability and security of supply of prescribed transmission services and maintain the reliability, safety and security of the transmission system through the supply of prescribed transmission services.
