The new Forrestdale Depot is part of the Depot Modernisation Program that involves the rationalisation of operational premises with a view to modernising accommodation, improving safety, and reducing overall operating costs. The facility incorporates a state-of-the-art micro-grid, harnessing solar power across all roofs and feeding it back into the network, demonstrating Western Power’s dedication to innovation and continued technological advancements. The electrical workshop includes high voltage testing, requiring faraday cage electrical separation to ensure high levels of accuracy in their work. The design for these facilities requires a holistic understanding of the operative and technical requirements and will stand as a benchmark for projects to come.
