Level Crossing Removal- Hoppers Crossing

Location: Werribee line, VIC
Contractor: OP Industries (Melbourne) Pty Ltd

Earlier this year major works began to create a 1.2-kilometre road bridge to the east of the current crossing and form at direct connection from Princes Highway through to Old Geelong Road. Manufactured at a pre-cast concrete factory in Sale, the precast concrete – known as crossheads –form part of a brand-new bridge being built to remove the dangerous and congested level crossing at Old Geelong Road, Hoppers Crossing. It’s a milestone which heralds the end of an era for the level crossing and its unique place in history. Three huge concrete bridge components have made an epic 300-kilometre truck journey as part of a ‘super load’ operation from Gippsland through to a level crossing removal site in Melbourne’s west.

The Hoppers Crossing Pedestrian Bridge project needed to generate cool and fresh outside air with very low energy consumption. Armcor had just the right unit to suffice this need which cropped up from the contractor. Armcor supplied and delivered three of their INDEC Indirect Evaporative Cooling units which can provide cool and fresh air in the hottest of climates, with radically reduced energy costs. These units were installed in the Lift shafts of the Pedestrian Bridge.

The new generation INDEC uses a patented indirect polymer heat transfer core that delivers cool, 100% fresh outside air with very low energy consumption. Incoming fresh air passes through the primary heat exchanger core which has a series of wet and dry channels allowing natural evaporation to cool the air. Warm moist air is expelled, while cool air, without added moisture, is delivered into the building.

Armcor Air Solutions have been the leading manufacturer of indirect air-cooling units, energy recovery systems and air-conditioning systems.
