The main project is to install new high-powered X and S Band transmitter systems on DSS43, to replace the existing systems and increase X-band transmitter power. A key element of the project will removal of the bulk of the existing power distribution system and replace it with a new system.
It is intended that this work be undertaken during planned DSS43A downtime in February to November 2020. A mandatory Site Visit will be held on 3/09/2019 at CDSCC and the tender is due 27 Sep 19.

Emergency Generator at Irwin Barracks WA – As part of Defence’s rolling Estate Upgrade program, the Department is seeking a service provider to supply and install a 180kVa emergency stand-by power generator on a concrete plinth at Irwin Barracks in Western Australia.
