Managing long-term supply agreements

Currently holds a five-year supply contract with Endeavour Energy for the supply of 33kV, 66kV and 132kV XLPE cables. Supply includes requirements by contractors in the contestable market.

Held a five-year frame agreement with ElectraNet – SA, supplied over 2000 kms of AFL OPGW from the USA.

Recently completed five-year supply contracts with Ausgrid and Essential Energy for 33kV, 66kV and 132kV XLPE cables.

In the EHV XLPE (33kV – 132kV) class, Jubatus held the term contract with Ausgrid (NSW) for more than 10 years, a business worth in excess of $50 million.

Supplied over 2000 kms of OPGW as part of a three-year supply contract to TransGrid (NSW). Jubatus was also contracted to undertake the pre-installation testing of the OPGW before issuance to contractors.

Managing overseas suppliers

Jubatus has developed relationships with its overseas suppliers that has been sustained over a long period of time. It has done this by adding value to every element of the business development cycle and supply chain.

A key part of the Jubatus strategy is to leverage its knowledge of the domestic market (technical, commercial and logistics) and use this to qualify its suppliers to key customers.
