TransGrid powers telecommunications for Western Sydney Airport


TransGrid Telecommunications has successfully delivered critical telecommunications infrastructure to the Western Sydney International Airport site at Badgerys Creek.

The connection works were carried out by TransGrid and included stringing 20 kilometres of optical ground wire (OPGW) conductor from Sydney West Substation to the Airport site. This connection incorporates high speed WaveLink and Internet connectivity over the TransGrid fibre network.

The completion of this telecommunications infrastructure is in addition to TransGrid’s successful delivery of critical electricity supply to the Western Sydney International Airport site.

The transmission project included the relocation of 3.2 kilometres of above ground high-voltage power line, which was critical to allow a substantial program of works to take place for the Airport, including the major program of earthworks that started in 2018. 

The Western Sydney International Airport Experience Centre is open to the public, allowing visitors to learn more about the Airport and the benefits it will bring to Western Sydney through an interactive digital experience.

TransGrid’s Head of Telecommunications, Glenn Wood, said “we are delighted to have been selected by Western Sydney International Airport to provide key telecommunications services at the Airport’s site office and Experience Centre.”

“TransGrid Telecommunications is also providing high speed scalable and secure data services to utilities and renewable energy projects in metro and regional NSW to enable better connectivity and SCADA communications”. – Naveen Bhutani – TransGrid Telecommunications - Senior Business Development Manager – Enterprise & Government
