Nudgee

Daly’s Constructions are in the process of completing this project for Olex Cables/Energex. This project is a turnkey design and construction project, 6.2km in length, consisting of a fully conduited system from Nudgee Substation to the Pinkenba termination structures.

Extensive stakeholder management, planning and contract management is required as the project transverses the Brisbane Airport and federally administered land. Numerous extraordinary permits and licences are required. Significant environmental management is also required; in particular the management of Acid Sulphate Soils and treatment and disposal of ground water.

This project includes six major directional drills, seven major sleeve bores (including a taxiway), excavation in difficult ground, installation of supersheathed cable and the construction of eight 23 metre long joint bays.
