Media Release: New technology to improve reliability in high fire-risk areas rolled out in Blackwood

Crews will install twenty-five new-generation Automatic Circuit Reclosers (ACRs), on powerlines protected by bushfire safety devices known as Rapid Earth Fault Current Limiters (REFCLs), with most set to be installed by the end of the year. The first of these advanced ACRs has been installed at Blackwood, a community supplied by a powerline that experienced a series of outages in March.
