CSS Case Study Mid Murray Council Generator
Date: June 2013
Services: Back Up Power Diesel Generator
Location: Mannum, South Australia
The Mid Murray Council governs and provides services to the Murraylands, Riverland and eastern slopes of Mount Lofty Ranges areas. One of the major features and well known landmarks of the Council’s region is the Murray River, which offers many commercial and leisure benefits, and primary production industries. The area also faces a busy tourist season throughout the summer months that see an increase in population to nearly twenty thousand people.
With Council offices at Mannum, Cambrai and Morgan, the Mid Murray Council services a robust and active community.
The Council, understandably, wanted to be shrewd and prepared when it came to potential outages and power failures. Without the proper preparedness, the Council could have put themselves at a significant disadvantage when it comes to servicing the people of the area, particularly during the summer months when the tourist population swells.
Given the nature of the area, power outages can be a frequent occurrence and the Council realised the importance of being well equipped with a backup generator. The community members’ needs and safety are paramount during these times.
