The San Remo Fisherman’s Co-Op is known by the locals as ‘The Co-Op.’ Since 1948, they have been serving the needs of the local fishing fleet and seafood loving community. With San Remo being home to Australia’s largest shark fishing fleet the demand for power on the jetty was a necessity.
The project was one for ‘out of the box,’ working on water, navigating tides and dealing with extreme changes in the weather were all part of bringing this one together.
Prolux supplied, wired and installed 20 powered marine pedestals on the jetty at San Remo, each one offering a 20amp 3 phase power outlet and two 15amp single phase power outlets. These are supplied by safety switches and isolators which are located behind lockable enclosures (keys and locks supplied) for each outlet and for the circuit protection on each pedestal, allowing the vessel user to isolate power when they’re away from the jetty and restore power upon their return, or as required.
All pedestals were fitted with an electrical meter that allows Co-Op’s management to monitor and record each vessel’s electricity usage, making bill issuing an easy task. The data for each meter can be accurately recorded and supplied back to Co-Op’s computer system through a software program also allowing them with the capability to control the ‘on and ‘off’ power to each pedestal as required.
Works included the supply and installation of:
- 20 Power Pedestals
- Stainless steel, free standing Marina Switchboard to the jetty
- 20 thermoplastic and elastomer insulated and sheathed copper 4 core + earth 4.0mm flex cables enclosed in non-metallic HD conduit between new switchboard and each pedestal
- 35mm 4c+e supply cable from Main Switchboard to the new Marina Switchboard
- Cable support systems to existing restaurant for the installation of the new sub-circuit to the Marina Switchboard
- CAT6 data cabling
Alterations to the existing 400A Main Switchboard were also made to make way for the new 160A circuit breaker (adjusted to 125A) and the new 400A circuit breaker (adjusted to 275A). A new 125A circuit breaker was also also installed to supply a new feed to the Marina Switchboard, along with a 275A circuit breaker to feed the existing restaurant.
