Opera House – Bennelong Restaurant

The Bennelong Restaurant located in Sydney Opera House is one of the most elite places to dine in Sydney. By The New York Times it was quoted to be “Holy Grail of Australian restaurant”. In 2015 Bennelong was named Best New Restaurant and received a total of six hats by Good Food Guide. The restaurant offers range of dining options to suit occasions with the most mesmerizing view of city lights at night.

During 2013 the restaurant proposed an electrical upgrade. The upgrade included replacing and modifying of switchboards. Southern Cross Switchboards role was to manufacture a new switchboard (6kA, IP42, Form 1, 160A) to replace the existing one, and supply a meter panel.

The switchboard was 18 pole 160A main switch panelboard with removable mild steel top and bottom Gland Plates. PM135 power meter was used.

The meter panel enclosure was constructed from mild steel sheet. The door was hung on lift-off type spring pin hinges and fitted with double bit quarter turn locks. To provide IP65 rating, continuous formed polyurethane gasket was used.

Overall the project was successfully accomplished.
