Ampcontrol’s Hong Kong team has provided comprehensive HV and LV electrical distribution works on behalf of Bouygues Travaux Publics on the Central Kowloon Route (CKR) project. This important piece of infrastructure is a 4.7km, dual 3-lane trunk road linking the Yau Ma Tei interchange in West Kowloon with the road network servicing the Kai Tak development and Kowloon Bay in East Kowloon.
Ampcontrol supplied key HV and LV electrical distribution works and services which included:
- Installation of a new and more environmentally friendly ring main unit due to its utilisation of green insulation air
- Installation of a triangular dry type transformer rather than a traditional rectangular transformer. This solution has a smaller footprint and provides superior insulation resistance
- Factory acceptance testing of a refurbished substation at Ampcontrol’s Tin Thui Wai workshop, ensuring the safety and efficiency of the equipment
- 10km of HV and LV cable
- HV testing and commissioning
- 12 substations
- HV switchgear
Successful delivery of the extensive HV and LV electrical distribution works expands Ampcontrol’s footprint within the CKR project. Ampcontrol has provided three Vacuum Circuit Breaker (VCB) panels, one 2MVA surface substation and one 1.25MVA tunnelling substation which are now in service on site.
Upon completion, the CKR project will form a trunk route through the heart of Kowloon, providing an alternate express route to relieve traffic congestion on the major east-west corridors. Ampcontrol have been contracted to provide a further 10 substations for service within the Central Kowloon Route project, for which work will continue into the foreseeable future.
