Aurora Energy – Harbour crossing project

Community centric at its heart​


Aurora Energy and the Otago Peninsula community have collaborated to replace ageing assets, provide an improved electricity supply to residents and improve the local environment. The project saw two new 11kV submarine cables with 350-amp capacity replace an existing 150-amp capacity cable, and the removal of six lattice towers and their overhead conductor. 
Aurora says early collaboration with the community enabled a more innovative approach and demonstrated the wider benefits available from replacing the existing overhead structures with new submarine cables.
