Find out more about the project
Ausgrid’s Merewether Sub transmission substation (STS), located at Coady Street, Hamilton South, is a major electricity supply point for a number of zone substations in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie council areas. These substations are supplied at 33,000 volts by a series of underground cables from Merewether STS. Several of these cables are to be the subject of a replacement program that will be implemented over the next five years. Image above shows a similar cable project.
