‘The team appreciated the votes it received for the People’s Choice Award, which saw the Katherine project receive three times the number of votes as any other project,’ said Carolyn Yates, Aurecon’s project director for the upgrade.
The project addressed many issues facing the supply system, which included increasing unreliability of critical infrastructure, complicated by demand growth outstripping the available generation capacity.
