Key Facts

Client: Mainzeal Construction

Location: East Tamaki, Auckland

Contract Value: $5m

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is a growing business in NZ and needed a larger laboratory in order to increase production and research. Mainzeal Construction Ltd was the contractor for the previous two buildings for Fisher and Paykel and used Electrix as their preferred subcontractor.

Electrix obtained the high and low voltage reticulation from the spare 630Amp breaker on the 11kV switchboard housed in the High Voltage substation. From this breaker the HV cable was run through the trench below the switchboard through an underground cable duct to the HV switchgear in the new HV switch room in the Building 3 Utility Building. Three fuse switches feed the 1.5MVA oil filled transformers in the basement with the other feeding the 2MVA transformer located adjacent to MSB4 switch room, supplying the mechanical plant in the Utility Building.  The HV switchgear is suitable for a future extension.

This is the largest building on site at 45,000 square meters. Mainzeal wished to maintain their strong relationship with F&P.

The client believes Electrix is the leader in the electrical field and using Electrix allowed the high and low voltage reticulation to be kept within one package.
