Energy Projects Engineering Commissioning

Rapid change is occurring in the National Electricity Market (NEM) as we transition to renewable and hybrid systems to meet our nation’s climate goals.
Connecting to the electricity network represents the single largest barrier to most renewable energy projects.

At EPEC, we support your project by solving the complex technical problems necessary to navigate the regulatory environment encountered within the electricity industry.

EPEC’s risk-based approach to balancing generator performance standards against both business case requirements and contracts for delivery is uniquely positioned to provide you with certainty in delivery for your project.

EPEC’s services include professional electrical engineering and electrical contracting, with scalable end-to-end project and resource management.

Improving the connection of Australia’s renewable energy

EPEC’s team is focused on providing certainty to the connection process across all project stages: from conceptualisation through to commissioning and operations.

Engineering

EPEC provides industry-leading engineering design and consulting services for electrical infrastructure projects. The EPEC engineering team consists of high voltage specialists with experience across the asset lifecycle in cost planning, design engineering, management, negotiation and delivery of electrical infrastructure.

EPEC’s power system engineering team maintain strategic competencies in power system analysis in the RMS and EMTP domains including for PSS/E, PSCAD, Powerfactory and Hypersim. Our power system engineers work in collaboration with you to ensure that your project is aligned to the realities of delivery at the enquiry, connection application, and registration phases with network services providers and AEMO.

EPEC offers a full range of high voltage field testing services which includes all aspects of pre-commissioning testing, and commissioning activities across all primary and secondary transmission and distribution plant as well as all preventative and corrective maintenance.

We have the capability to conduct testing using both automated and manual single or three phase secondary injection test equipment with GPS time synchronisation capability which can be required for end to end Protection Scheme testing. Our test equipment is capable of carrying out tests using high currents and voltage injections. 

EPEC’s specialised commissioning management services ensure the commissioning phase of your project is managed with a high level of attention to detail to ensure the best outcome for your projects.

EPEC’s engineering team are consultative, providing technical advice, project support and supplementary resources across a range of disciplines. We can advise across all aspects of your project including cost reduction strategies and resource optimisation.
