• Power Plants A and B at McMurdo Station;
• Upgrading the 4.16 kV High Voltage (HV) network between Scott Base, the Crater Hill Wind Farm,

• Installing a new Microgrid Control System (MCS), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and historian system to control and monitor the status of the RIWE network;
• New Scott Base (New Zealand’s Antarctica base).
