UEA Electrical Expands its Project Management Team

Posted 1 June 2012

Mark Bampton and Dave Green have joined UEA’s project management team bringing with them a wealth of experience in delivering complex transmission and distribution projects.

Mark has worked with Endeavour Energy for 9 years as a Project Manager (Transmission Mains) and Contract Inspector. In addition to his electrical trade, Mark has completed his Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Power Systems), a Diploma of Project Management and has been accredited by the Australian Institute of Project Management as a Certified Practicing Project Manager (CPPM).

Dave brings strong trade and management skills to the team with extensive project experience with all three electricity distributors in NSW and has delivered a wide range of high profile electrical construction projects including: zone substation construction, switchyard construction up to 330kV, underground cabling up to 330kV and transmission power line construction as well as mining projects.

As a leading ‘Grade A’ Level 1 ASP (Construction) and Level 3 ASP (Design) UEA Electrical is continuing to deliver a growing number of electrical overhead and underground works within key franchise areas. With their practical, technical and project management expertise in electrical construction and electrical design both Mark and Dave will be valuable additions to the UEA Electrical project management team.

In his new role Mark will be heading up multiple underground electrical construction projects located throughout the key franchise areas. The projects will include all facets of electrical infrastructure design and construction including Pad Mount Substations, high and low voltage cable hauling and all types of cable jointing. With increasing demand requirements and establishment of new development sites, Mark is helping our clients secure their future power supply requirements.

Dave is currently project managing various overhead work packets which include pole replacements, Load Break Switch installs, Air Break Switch installs and HV/ LV overhead augments. A typical project is the Great Western Highway Prospect HV Overhead Augment Project which sees a variety of poles, switches and a new under bore across the Great Western Highway with associated underground HV cabling installed. This project also sees 35 bays of overhead conductor augmented in order to bring the current electricity network to current standards and cater for future network loads.
