Marayong Zone Substation



The project involves:

  • construction of a new 33/11kV indoor ZS building to accommodate indoor switchgear and facilities
  • replacement of existing transformers with new low noise transformers within new enclosures
  • re-configuration of the existing feeder connections into the new ZS as required
  • decommissioning and demolition of the existing outdoor ZS, including the control building and outdoor switchyard, after the new ZS is commissioned
  • remediation of the existing ZS site and landscaping

The need

Many of the components within the zone substations have reached the end of their service lives and require renewal or replacement. This will ensure a safe and reliable electricity to the suburbs of Marayong, Kings Park, Kings Langley and Lalor Park.

The location

Marayong Zone Substation is at the corner of Raymond Street and Charles Street, Blacktown.
