JULY 2021 – THE WHEELS KEEP ROLLING

Through these difficult and ever changing COVID times Blue Sun has managed to stay on top with the ongoing supply of poles for both small and large projects.  Steel prices as well as other costs have soared, and as the building industry are acutely aware of, many materials have been in short supply. This has been mostly due to shipping problems, as well as early in the piece many factories going into limp mode. Also because many materials and products are being consumed on home turf with local stimulus and government infrastructure spending.

Plan ahead and early as times have not stopped changing. Contact us with your requirements or forecast usage now.

Blue Sun appoints new CEO

Paul comes to us with 25 years’ experience in the Queensland Electricity Industry where he worked
in varying roles that drew upon his background as an Electrical Engineer. From roles in the State’s
Electricity Control Centres, supporting the Energy Management Systems that monitor Queensland’s
Transmission and Generation backbone, to Managing teams of Technologists and Engineers
developing maintenance and test plans for the Grid Infrastructure. We feel Paul comes well
equipped to understand the Electricity connection rules and give our customers confidence in sound
advice for their property service pole requirements and with an inquisitive mind to strengthen his
understanding of all things Poles.

 

 

Special Poles for Asset Protection

Blue sun was challenged to design a series of 25m poles which would allow a cable to be tensioned between them for a span of 160 metres and for this cable to have no more than a 1 metre sag. This meant that an approximate load of 15000 kg would be applied to the cables and subsequently transferred through to the poles. As the pole was designed “as a pole” and not a tower this meant deploying the use of critically  placed guy wires as well as ensuring a suitable foundation system was in place.

The purpose of these cables (set up in series) is to provide lighting protection to the electrically sensitive assets stored underneath it. This was another job successfully completed by Blue Sun Poles. Location: Mid Jungle -5.579769, 150.181738
