Wilson Transformer snags Wheatstone Contract

A Victorian company has won a USD 21 million construction contract for the Wheatstone LNG project in Western Australia, and become the first Australian firm recognized as a certified global supplier of electrical equipment to international energy giant Chevron. Wilson Transformer Company will supply transformers and neutral earthing resistors from its Glen Waverley manufacturing plant to Chevron Australia’s Wheatstone development in the Pilbara region. As a certified global supplier, the company can now bid to supply electrical equipment to more than 100 Chevron projects worldwide. The campaign aims to attract over 5,000 skilled and semi-skilled people to work on the Wheatstone Project. The project’s foundation phase is expected to see an investment in excess of USD 29 billion.
