Work

The installation was constructed and handed over by us on a turnkey basis. In addition, Strukton Rail designed and supplied a control and protection system, and also undertook the disassembly and assembly work for the existing switching station.

Conditions

The work had to be carried out whilst the power station remained fully in operation. If the power station had been shut down, the entire island would have quickly been completely without water and electricity.
