Victorian Big Battery

This project is one we have proudly completed for the Victorian Big Battery (VBB) 220kV/33kV Connection Substation. VBB is a 300MW Grid-Scale Battery Storage, which is a key part of the Victorian clean energy transition.

We recently completed the full Civil and Structural package for our very valued client Downer, which included:

– Bulk earthworks
– Conduits and drainage
– In-ground oily water storage tank
– Structural foundations
– Fencing
– New bay of foundations in existing terminal station

There were a couple of challenges that our team faced, namely unseasonable weather that caused delays at project commencement and Intricate coordination with other key contractors.

With challenges came some massive highlights. One team approach harnessed by D Form Civil and Downer allowing the project to be delivered successfully on time. We also had zero MTIs or LTIs, and the finish was of the highest quality.

Berrybank Windfarm Substation (Oil Spill Tank)

D Form Civil were awarded a package of works at the new Berrybank Substation which connects the energy generated from the Berrybank Windfarm into the state grid.

Initially engaged to a full package delivery of an Oil Spill Tank (including excavation, FRP and backfill), our scope was extended to complete the drainage lines between the transformers to the tank. Having completed these works safely, successfully and within the required timeframe, D Form Civil were awarded further works which retained our team on site for a further 8 months. 

The key success factor behind this project was precise planning and coordination. The sharp timeframe on completion and the rural geographical location posed some challenges on sourcing local materials and resources. Strong winds were also often a daily challenge for both manual handling and cranage operations. 

Our team exhibited strong co-operation with the client and other contractors on site when delivering the project.
