Suburban Underground Power Program


Our involvement in the Suburban Underground Power Program (SUPP) encompassed fibre network maintenance & installation, underground migration of power networks and support services.

The project scope included pit & pipe optic fibre installations, pole to pillar services and migration of overhead power networks to an underground environment, across Western Australia.

Disciplines Employed

  • Pit & Pipe optic fibre
  • Pole to Pillar services
  • Migration of overhead power networks

Scope of Works

  • Design
  • Land Access
  • Pit & Pipe
  • Hauling
  • Splicing & testing
  • Trenching


Migration to an underground environment was completed successfully, on budget and to schedule. The project team and all our external suppliers have showed immense resilience and a commitment to the ethos of Mateship, which is a core value at Genus.

This commitment ensured the on-time delivery of a key infrastructure project in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. With severe shortages in the labour market and considerable supply chain constraints this achievement cannot be overstated.
