EnergyConnect

EnergyConnect is one of the nation’s largest energy infrastructure projects, involving the construction of a transmission line connecting New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria. The interconnector will be around 900 km long.

Supporting infrastructure will also be built or upgraded, including a new substation between Buronga and Wagga Wagga. The interconnector is a key element of the Australian Energy Market Operator’s Integrated System Plan and the New South Wales Government has declared it Critical State Significant Infrastructure.

Transgrid’s delivery partner for EnergyConnect is a joint venture between Clough and Elecnor known as SecureEnergy Joint Venture (SEJV).

REGISTERING TO WORK ON ENERGYCONNECT

All subcontractors to SecureEnergy (SEJV) will receive an invitation by email to complete registration of their business and workers into the Transgrid WSAT system. All contractors and workers on EnergyConnect must be registered. The process is completed in two parts: business registration, and worker registration, including induction bookings.

We suggest you read through the instructions and give yourself time to source the information needed to work for Transgrid. Administrators will complete this process for your business and each worker.

If your business is already registered, you may login to the system via Pegasus Gateway, and follow the instructions under Stage 2: Register Your Workers to ensure each employee is site-ready for this project.

Video and document user guides can be found from the Help and Resources page.

LET’S GET STARTED

Stage 1: Register Your Business (click to expand instructions)

Step 1 > Register a username and password

The Transgrid Worker Safety, Authorisation and Training (WSAT) System can be found by clicking the button below:

Start by entering a username of your choosing, plus your email address and a password. You’ll be emailed confirmation.

Step 2 > Register business details and answer profile questions

Using your new details, login to the WSAT system.

Important Action

As a subcontractor to SEJV you ONLY need to register your business name which is free of charge. You are not required to provide evidence of insurances or complete a Safety and Environment Management System (SEMS) review.

To ensure you register as a subcontractor ensure you answer the ‘Classification’ questions as follows: ‘Are you being engaged by Transgrid. If you are being engaged by Transgrid you will be invoicing Transgrid directly?’ Answer No.

To complete your registration, you will next be invited to register your workers. Please click to expand Stage 2.

Stage 2: Register Your Workers (click to expand instructions)

Step 1 > Login and add workers

On business registration approval (stage 1), Pegasus will email you login details to register your workers.

Using these emailed details, login and add your workers – you’ll start by selecting Manage Roles and then Add New Employee. From here you can enter and save their personal contact details, address, phone and email.

If a worker is already a registered cardholder, you may proceed to Step 3 to select their site and role for this project.

Step 2 > Pay for worker registration and contractor card

Pay for your worker’s registration and order their contractor cards to work for Transgrid.

    • Year 1 costs $90 + GST per worker for the management of roles, verification of documents, inductions and supply of card.
    • Year 2 costs $45 + GST per worker.

A tax invoice will be supplied on payment. If your workers hold current registrations in the Transgrid WSAT system, there is no additional cost to add their roles on this site.

Step 3 > Select site and roles

Select Manage Roles Add Site and select EnergyConnect Project. Workers must hold these roles, which will be auto-assigned or selected:

Mandatory:

    • EnergyConnect Worker (auto-assigned)

Where applicable:

    • Power System Safety Rules and Environmental Authorisations
    • Trade or task role they complete on site (must choose at least one for each worker)

Note: the minimum PSSR role to work in a Transgrid substation is PSSR 3.3 – Work in a Substation or Switchyard and when working on a Transgrid easement it is Transmission – PSSR 6.1 – General Work.

If you are unsure what roles you need to apply for each worker, please contact your SEJV representative.

Step 4 > Upload documents 

Your role selections will determine the competency documents (licences, cards and qualifications) which you will need to upload in the system to prove your worker can perform the chosen role/s. Pegasus will validate the documents you have uploaded during the registration of your workers.

Contractor cards

Upon document approval and induction completion, the roles will be applied to your worker’s profile and contractor cards issued. The contractor card will be sent to the worker’s nominated address, and this could be your business’s address. Please ensure that all workers receive their card prior to commencing work at site.

It’s important that you keep worker’s details up to date, and you’ll be emailed about expiring documents and information to stay compliant. You may also elect to invite your workers to the Transgrid Worker Portal, which allows them to manage their own profile. Visit the Worker Portal page for more information.
