During the last week, work progressed on the installation of the 1.6MW Solar photo-voltaic array that will expand the existing MRO power station's clean energy capabilities. It was a big week for the power station with the arrival of the containerised electrical systems, including the RFI-shielded battery containers. In addition, a high voltage cable was run between the Solar array and the Horizon Power station. During the mains outage, electrical work was carried out on antennas AK24 and AK27, progressing a gradual upgrade of all antenna switchboards to enable better remote power monitoring and circuit breaker control. The power outage also allowed work on several of the high voltage transformers located at each antenna pedestal and replacement of two high voltage RFI filters that allow the mains power to cross between the interior and exterior of the central control building without providing a path for RFI.
