Ravensworth Transmission Line

This project was part of Xstrata’s expansion of their Ravensworth Coal Mine in the Hunter Valley. Part of the enabling works was the relocation of TransGrid’s overhead 330kV transmission line which Downer Engineering was contracted to undertake. After negotiations with the parties, it was agreed that a tri-party agreement be completed between TransGrid, Xstrata and Downer, which covered all commercial aspects of the project.

Our involvement

Aquenta was engaged to provide assistance to Downer Engineering in the timely submission of claims and variations. This involved the preparation of the variation costs, notification of extensions of time and the backup to extension of time claims.


Dispute/Avoidance Resolution.

The outcome

TransGrid issued Downer Engineering an extension of time claim due to the delays incurred. Downer Engineering completed the project by the revised completion date and obtained the completion bonus.
