Downer’s metering services business, Skilltech, has been awarded a new metering services contract with Western Power, a State Government owned corporation delivering safe, reliable and affordable energy supply to 2.3 million customers across Western Australia.

After securing its first water metering contract in South Australia with SA Water last year, Skilltech has achieved another milestone – winning its first metering services contract in Western Australia.

The scope of services includes meter exchange and minor installation repairs, installation and replacement of point-to-point communication devices, network interface cards and antennas, and new connection energisation.

The contract will run for 3 years. The service areas cover the Perth Metropolitan area and other Metropolitan areas, including Mandurah and Murray districts.

“This is a significant win for the business because it expands our services into yet another Australian state,” Skilltech General Manager, Daniel Howard, says.

“Skilltech is well known in the industry for providing quality and tailored services, coupled with industry-leading technology. We look forward to bringing these services to WA and building a solid partnership with Western Power. Skilltech’s success is testament to the hard work of everyone in our team. Well done all”.

The contract is due to commence in July 2021, with the Skilltech team working alongside Downer’s Utilities team in the Canning Vale office.
