Power transmission and distribution

Aurecon has been a market leader in energy transmission and distribution in Australia and New Zealand for more than 40 years. More recently, we have expanded our ability to undertake transmission and delivery projects in Asia, Africa and the Middle East utilising our local strengths.

We employ energy professionals who have worked with both private and public sector energy companies and utilities. We understand the technical and commercial demands facing the global energy market - increasing regulatory scrutiny, volatility in price and demand, and a growing demand for alternative energy sources. We bring this industry insight to bear in our technical service delivery.

We are able to quickly mobilise expertise across a variety of disciplines and sectors, including system planning and concept and feasibility studies, tender preparation and evaluation, design, management procurement, construction and commissioning as well as operations and maintenance support. Our philosophy is to tailor a team to meet any project challenge, regardless of location, by drawing on experts from more than 40 specialisations across Aurecon. Key services and skills include transmission line design, power system planning studies, all aspects of substation design, and asset management.

Highly respected in the energy industry, we are frequently engaged to carry out due diligence on large asset and network acquisitions and we act as advisers to asset owners and developers on a range of business issues. 

Aurecon has an engineering and scientific facility located at the University of Newcastle, Australia, which has been providing services to asset owners, operators and maintainers of power and industrial plants for four decades. This facility provides valuable input and knowledge to our transmission and distribution team, providing our clients access to exceptional practical insights. Many of our people actively collaborate with universities, present at industry conferences and belong to top engineering bodies such as CIGRE, a leading worldwide electric power systems organisation.
