What to Expect from Excavation Services in Castlemaine

Excavation is either done for construction purposes or archaeological purposes. Either way, the excavation process is planned and extensive. The former needs plan setting, excavation drawings, and excess soil removal while catering to requirements like trenching and digging. The latter also requires extensive planning and involves the unearthing and uprooting for historical, archaeological, and anthropological evidence. Whatever reason you want excavation to be done, it requires a lot of manpower, machinery, tools and skill. The excavation contractors listed on iSeekplant are well adept at providing you with all the requirements as mentioned above and catering to your excavation needs.

The very first thing an excavation specialist would do is examine the entire site carefully to form gridline drawings and excavation drawings. Through an examination of this drawing, the excavation plan is laid out, and excavation depth is determined — excavation services begin with measuring available land extent by removing unwanted plant growth. The initial ground level and bottom size are measures, and the area's tracing is done with lime powder. Premium excavation machinery and tools are then employed to conduct the excavation process, and the excavated soil is placed in pits around the sides of the site.

Once the excavation process is complete, a dressing is done on the excavated site. Sealing and closing all sides of the site are done for accident prevention and safety purposes. Extensive quality checks are done on the excavated soil to create a ground report for further work on the land.

Victoria-New South Wales Interconnector Funding Approved

Funding for the Victoria-New South Wales Interconnector (VNI Minor) has been approved by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER), which will play a significant role in bolstering the electricity supply following the closure of Liddell Power Station in August 2023.The Australian Energy Market Operator’s (AEMO) 2020 Integrated System Plan (ISP) identified VNI Minor as a project required to address cost, security and reliability issues in the National Electricity Market.AER Chair, Clare Savage, said, “VNI Minor was proposed by AEMO in their role as the national planner responsible for identifying new transmission needs to support the energy system’s transition.“In our role, we’ve assessed TransGrid’s proposed costs and determined that they are reasonable. The AER has approved the $45 million that is needed to deliver the project.“The project will increase transmission capacity between New South Wales and Victoria and provide consumers with secure and reliable energy supplies.”VNI Minor is the first ‘actionable project’ to progress under new rules governing the ISP and the AER’s decision is the final stage in the regulatory process.The new rules require the AER to assess the prudence and efficiency of the costs of delivering the option found to offer the highest net market benefits in AEMO’s ISP.The AER’s decision amends TransGrid’s existing 2018-23 revenue determination to account for the costs of delivering the project.Average residential customers in New South Wales will pay an estimated extra $1 on their bills in 2022-23 as a result of this decision.TransGrid Project Director, Dany Gittani, said, “The VNI Minor project will allow more energy to flow between the two states and help lower the cost of wholesale electricity across the National Electricity Market.“The VNI Minor project involves TransGrid installing ‘smart wires’ power flow controller technology within our Stockdill substation in the ACT.‘Smart wires’ technology enables the real-time control of electricity flows along powerlines. The system detects areas of congestion in the network and automatically redirects flows to less congested lines, under certain network scenarios. It will allow more energy to be transferred between Victoria and NSW.“The AER decision enables us to deliver the project to fruition this year.”
