City West Cable Tunnel, Sydney, Australia
Ancon stainless steel brackets have been used to support the heavy duty cables along the full length of the City West Cable Tunnel in Sydney.
The cable tunnel was constructed by Thiess as part of EnergyAustralia's major upgrade of electricity infrastructure of Sydney. Measuring 1.7 kilometres long and 3.5 metres wide, the new tunnel carries transmission cabling across the city's central business district.
The maintenance-free life and proven integrity of stainless steel, combined with Ancon's fabrication expertise, means no costly remedial measures will be required for the life of the structure.
Ancon was selected to manufacture this high specification support system due to its proven track record of supplying volume orders of standardised components.
Ancon is a specialist fabricator and has a wealth of experience in working with a range of types and grades of stainless steel.
