Roxtec and TasNetworks recently collaborated to solve an ongoing issue with silt and water seeping into TasNetworks’ Hadspen substation, in Tasmania’s north.

Water ingress through the conduits and the moisture condensation was creating partial discharge on the 22kV switchgear in the substation.

TasNetworks approached Roxtec Regional Manager Gary Lee, and through working together, Mr Lee was able to present a reliable cable sealing solution for the TasNetworks asset team.

“We are pleased to assist TasNetworks in providing cable seals that will protect the network assets in Tasmania for many years to come,” Mr Lee said.

The existing leaking medium was replaced by openable Roxtec RS seals.

TasNetworks Area Asset Manager – EHV Substations, Alan Brown, said that the Hadspen solution was working well and that the business had installed Roxtec seals at its Lindisfarne substation in southern Tasmania and four other sites were being prepared.
