ODG Powers new Canberra Airport Terminal


Electrical engineering company O’Donnell Griffin has been appointed to undertake the $19.4 million “backbone” electrical works at Canberra Airport.

The initial $11 million phase is for electrical systems associated with the airport’s new multi-user terminal.

The contract involves installing the power, lighting and data communications in both the retail and passenger areas of the terminal, says O’Donnell Griffin NSW State Manager, Mr Phil Tilden. The works will take about 18 months.

“It’s really about providing the electrical backbone for the new terminal,” he said.

The new terminal is part of Canberra Airport’s “AirVolution” redevelopment program which involves a total investment of $350 million.

The ODG works follow other projects for Construction Control at the airport, including nearly completed $1.2 million of electrical services at its new four-storey, covered carpark.

The new car park, an apron hardstand to park more jets and its Southern Concourse Terminal will be completed by the middle of 2010. The remaining works, including a new Western Concourse Terminal are expected to be completed in 2012 subject to planning and other approvals.

The Southern Concourse Terminal will incorporate tri-generation technology which generates electricity on site and uses waste heat from air conditioning for heating. Low energy fittings are also to be used, said Mr Tilden.

O’Donnell Griffin has worked on a number of other landmark Canberra projects with Construction Control, including Defence facilities and the Australian National University.

O’Donnell Griffin is part of the Electrical & Communications division of Norfolk, an ASX listed company.
