Daly’s Constructions (Australia) is a family-owned enterprise backed by 50 years of knowledge and experience, having provided substation civil and cable installation works for Australian utilities since the 1970s.
Today, Daly’s is recognised as a specialist service provider for the underground electrical infrastructure industry. Daly’s possess in-house capability and experience to manage and construct civil, structural infrastructure and cable installation work in live substation environments.
Works within substations and terminal stations requires highly skilled and experienced personnel due to the risks posed by complex and congested electrical equipment.
Daly’s crews specialise in these conditions and have successfully delivered numerous substation projects throughout Australia. They have a strong understanding of utility processes and standards, and their reputation reflects their capability and performance.
Daly’s substation experience extends to:
• General civil works, stormwater drainage and road construction
• Installation of cable racks, culverts, trays and other cable support systems
• Primary plant foundations for transformers, ring main units, capacitor banks and other primary plant
• Switch room foundations
• Bored piers or slab foundations
• Earth grid installation
• Cable installation into and within substations, jointing and terminating
• Substation fencing
Since 2017, Daly’s has supported CitiPower and Powercor’s Rapid Earth Fault Current Limiter (REFCL) program, providing bulk earthworks, drainage, road construction, foundations, and underground civil and electrical services at the regional Victorian towns Camperdown, Winchelsea, Colac, Terang, and most recently Hamilton.
Daly’s latest endeavour saw their crews travel to Hamilton Zone Substation to install hundreds of metres of new conduit, culverts, construct concrete foundations for the new control room, transformers and switchgear, as well as complete multiple cable feeder upgrades to the surrounding area.
Daly’s Project Manager, Givantha Silva, said, “This would not have been possible without the hard work and sacrifice of our crews and subcontractors. They have spent extended periods away from their families and we are very grateful for the efforts.”
Appreciating Daly’s contribution, Powercor REFCL Project Manager Ben Hatfield said, “The REFCL program has seen many challenges including, but not limited to, tight timeframes, and new standards, designs, equipment and construction methods.
Time and time again, we put these challenges in front of Daly’s and they have delivered on time and with a quality finish. Daly’s have been instrumental in helping Powercor achieve the demanding milestones of the program.”
