Complex highway construction project in New Zealand
Several genset units with different power levels are already in service at the Gully highway construction site in Wellington, New Zealand.
Rental range INMESOL gensets chosen for this project
The generator sets chosen to provide electric power for the tasks being carried out at this large construction site are from the Rental range.
The gensets within this range perfectly fit the working conditions required in this type of long-term projects that may be exposed to harsh weather or adverse conditions at the site (in this case, subjected to frequent earthquakes).
- Strong and highly stable generator sets.
- Extremely quiet.
- Fit with wide doors that make maintenance tasks
- Fit with lifting hooks that ensure stability and safety during transport operations.
- Canopy protected with Qualicoat paint, providing high resistance to ultraviolet radiations and increased durability, even under the harshest conditions.
You can learn more about these and other features of the Rental range equipment in the following video.
GULLY highway construction project: TRANSMISSION GULLY PROJECT.
The Gully highway will complement the current State Highway 1, a coast road that connects the Kapiti, Pukerua Bay and Porirua coasts (red line on the figure below). It will offer 4 lanes and will cover a 27 km extension (blue line), with an estimated elevation gradient of 8.3%.
Its construction officially started on September 8, 2014, and it is expected to be completed in 2020.
This is a complex project, facing difficult and rough terrains that require large scale earthworks.
One of the sections features a 230-meter long and 60-meter high bridge.
This highway will result in other benefits:
- A significant reduction in the amount of accidents involving serious consequences and deaths.
- It will offer a safer and more reliable journey experience.
- It will reduce traffic congestion on the existing highway and improve safety in neighbouring communities, such as Porirua.
