The new Manton Zone Substation has gone live and will support a more reliable power supply to customers in Batchelor, Adelaide River, Lake Bennett and the Acacia areas of the Northern Territory.
This new infrastructure is part of Power and Water’s program to upgrade zone substation equipment. Commissioned on the 19th of May, the new substation replaces the end of life 22kV indoor switchboard. Over the next four weeks, feeders will be progressively cut over to the new substation.
Future plans include the installation of a new feeder from the Manton Zone Substation to Darwin River Dam.
The new station is part of Power and Water’s infrastructure upgrades to improve power services throughout the Territory.
