The Shepparton Hospital Upgrade is building more capacity in the electricity network to enable the Shepparton Hospital Redevelopment and improve the security of supply to this critical piece of Shepparton’s infrastructure. As well as providing the backup and higher capacity connection, this upgrade will help us continue delivering electricity to the region with 99.99% reliability.
The works involve creating a back-up connection from a separate zone substation, which means the hospital will be able to run at full capacity even if a major outage occurs on one part of the network.
The upgrade will also assist in strengthening the network for homes and businesses in Shepparton, improving reliability for customers and support the rise in electrification across the energy sector, as more customers invest in solar, electric vehicles and other electric items.
Works are funded as part of the Victorian Government’s Goulburn Valley Health – Shepparton Hospital redevelopment with contributions by Powercor.
Works are scheduled to commence in February 2023 with completion in June 2023.
Construction activities will take place across various areas throughout the Shepparton including; Hawkins Street, Monash Street, Archer Street, Vaughan Street, High Street & the nearby surrounds.
Construction activities will be staged to minimise disruptions where possible.
