Vector – Hobson Street Substation Grid Exit Point (GXP)

As part of a joint Transpower and Vector project the Hobson Street Substation Grid Exit Point (GXP) was developed to reinforce and ensure the reliability of the power supply to Auckland’s CBD and transmission through to Northland.

Due to the importance of the substation to power supply infrastructure a number of complex and specialist fire detection and suppression systems are installed within the substation to provide life safety and asset protection from fire.

Trade Mark Design have worked with Vector to oversee the testing and periodic re-certification of the specialist fire protection systems and to ensure that these works are undertaken in accordance with established best practice and without disruption to the operation of the Substation and it’s critical functions.
