Ekurhuleni airport’s “super-sub” extension contract



Actom Power Systems, the company’s substation project management business unit, was awarded a contract of over R30-million in July this year to extend the 132/11 kV airport “super substation”. The contract entails the construction of two new 60 MVA transformer bays to power a large-scale data centre expansion project currently being undertaken by Teraco Data Environments at its Isando campus. The contract is a “self-build” project overseen by Consolidated Power Engineering, appointed by Teraco as the consulting engineers responsible for the project to the approval and acceptance of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality. The business unit won this strongly contested contract largely due to the fact that its tender bid incorporated an innovative approach to a tricky technical problem associated with the substation.
