Darling Downs Power Station
With the provision of all survey services the responsibility of Pacific Survey, the Darling Downs gas fired power plant is well on track for completion in March 2010.
There are many influences, natural and otherwise, that our surveyors must contend with on site. One of the more difficult aspects is the severe temperature variation and the impact it has on measurement. Darling Downs experiences huge temperature differences throughout the various seasons, ranging from a chilly -5 degrees Celsius through to a summer peak of 45 degrees Celsius, resulting in some rather challenging situations for our team.
The project has now been under way since August 2007 and so far, Pacific Survey have been involved with turbine and generator alignment, structural steel works, gantry crane alignment, bulk earthworks, drainage and concrete works.
