Basslink Terrestrial Interconnector Gippsland
Victoria 2005

Client: Pirelli


Daly’s Constructions constructed this project for Prysmian (formerly Pirelli) in Gippsland, Victoria.

The project involved the installation of 6.5km 400kV DC link consisting of a main positive cable, negative cable and associated communications and thermal sensing cables.

Stringent quality control methods were in place to ensure specifications were met or exceeded. Many new and innovative work methods were introduced to counter manual handling issues associated with such large cables (50kg/metre). This project achieved all health, safety and environmental targets whilst production targets were ahead of schedule.
