City West Cable Tunnel, Sydney
Ancon stainless steel brackets have been used to support the heavy duty cables along the full length of the City West Cable Tunnel in Sydney.
The cable tunnel was constructed by Thiess as part of EnergyAustralia's major upgrade of electricity infrastructure of Sydney. Measuring 1.7 kilometres long and 3.5 metres wide, the new tunnel carries transmission cabling across the city's central business district.
The maintenance-free life and proven integrity of stainless steel, combined with Ancon's fabrication expertise, means no costly remedial measures will be required for the life of the structure.
Ancon was selected to manufacture this high specification support system due to its proven track record of supplying volume orders of standardised components.
Ancon is an ASSDA accredited specialist fabricator and has a wealth of experience in working with a range of types and grades of stainless steel.
In addition to the supply of structural fixings, Ancon is a leading supplier of stainless steel sections and flooring.
As a future-oriented, innovative company, Leviat focuses on the ever-changing requirements of the industry, and our latest development combines the portfolio of Ancon and Halfen Tension Systems to ensure we meet the individual requirements of our customers.
We are excited to announce the ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) has issued the first appraisal report in New Zealand to Leviat for Halfen HZA Anchor Channels and HZS Channel Bolts.
