The Richmond Terminal Station rebuild has been one of the most critical power project ever undertaken in Australia

Key to AusNet Services’ landmark Edison Project, Multiworks contributed to the upgrade and replacement of aging electrical infrastructure and equipment at Richmond, Brunswick and West Melbourne terminal stations. The upgraded terminal stations deliver new technologies to support inner Melbourne’s increasing population growth and power supply needs.

The Richmond Terminal Station was the first and largest of the Project Edison terminal station sites. It involved execution of sequential and continuous civil and building works in 14 stages over a seven-year period. Throughout delivery Multiworks ensured electricity to the network including to Melbourne’s CBD remained uninterrupted.

Multiworks was engaged directly by Ausnet Services in 2012 under a lump sum contract valued at $8.3M and subsequently completed works to the value of $100M onsite, including:

  • New 66kV GIS Switch and Control Rooms (2 stage)
  • New 220kV GIS Switch and Control Room > Transformer Bays (Approx 6)
  • New Feeder Connections between existing and new switchyards, control buildings, internal roadways and switchroom
  • Monopole footings
  • Demolition of 220 & 66kV switchyards
