Electricity Commission of NSW

In the summer of 1982/83, in the long break between my first and second years at University, I worked for the Electricity Commission of NSW as a trainee electrical engineer at the Tamworth Regional Centre.

I could only find two photos from that time, that were included in the work placement report I had to write. Its interesting to note how much work safety standards have changed in 35 years.

In the summer of 1983/84, in the long break between my 2nd and 3rd years at University, I worked at Eraring Power Station near Newcastle, as a trainee electrical engineer.

At this time some of the generating units were in production, and some still under construction.
