Scaffolding with More Possibilities. Lighter. Faster. Stronger. Layher.

220kV Substation Scaffold

220kv Substation Scaffold by Camelspace

220kV Substation Scaffold

Camelspace were called upon to design and build three sealing-end structures for Auckland’s new 220kV circuits at the point where they return above ground.

Withstand high winds

The structure was built using Layher’s Allround modular system and aluminium beams 750 and then wrapped.

Phil McConchie commented that “specialist high voltage cable joint contractors, who were brought to New Zealand especially for the project, spent four weeks working on the scaffold and commented it was one of the best they’d seen anywhere in the world”.

These fully clad and roofed structures needed to be designed and built to withstand high winds, consequently each structure had over 50T of ballast, 171T in total.
