The Major Works Division Electrical Isolation Improvement Program (EIIP) is improving Sydney Trains electrical network by implementing new technology to reduce the time it takes to isolate and restore power.
Rail Planning Services provided SME support to the program including electrical isolation processes/requirements, infrastructure, authorisations, roles & responsibilities. This included experience and support for the various assurance deliverables and activities to ensure compliance to the Electrical Network Safety Rules, ASA Standards and regularity and legislative requirements. In circumstances where the process change did not align with current requirements and or regulations, our team identified and assessed risks and hazards with alignment to SFARP principles.
Other scope included:
- Engaging with key stakeholders throughout the process assessments to achieve support/ finial implementation approval of the process changes and new infrastructure;
- Working closely with the infrastructure stream responsible for the development, procurement, design and construction; and
- Managing key stakeholder engagement for the new remotely controlled isolating and rail connecting electrical infrastructure.
