Our People Are Our Power
About Pole Power
Pole Power is an independent Mackay based power line construction and maintenance business. It has been operating successfully under the direction of General Manager/Director Mr Norman Fraser, since May 1996, when our operations officially commenced. Prior to establishing his own business, Mr Fraser was employed by the Mackay Electricity Board for a period of 25 years. The experience and knowledge gained during his many years of employment with the MEB have proven to be invaluable tools. His skills and expertise are quite evident throughout all areas of the business and the extremely high standard that Pole Power offers is a testament to his dedication to the industry.
In 2013 Norm Fraser retired and Justin Fraser took over Directorship and Management of the business. Justin Fraser has over 18 years experience in the Electrical Industry and commenced his Apprenticeship with Pole Power. Since Mr Fraser’s inception, Pole Power has continued to succeed and maintain it’s high standard.
Pole Power provides power line construction and maintenance services to Power Authorities
Pole Power has a policy of achieving the specified quality requirements of the contracts it enters into with its customers.

Until December 2001, Pole Power was the successful tender for the vegetation management contract with Ergon Energy – Mackay. We have held this contract in the Mackay region for a period of 5 years. However as the area to be managed increased beyond our scope, the decision to expand the power line construction and maintenance area of the business was made.
The majority of the our experience in the electrical industry has been with Ergon Energy Corporation Ltd – Mackay, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Emerald and Longreach. Over time Pole Power was the successful tender on numerous contracts for the construction and maintenance of overhead power lines.
In September 2002
Pole Power was the successful tender for Minor Construction and Maintenance Works on Overhead Power lines in both the Central and Northern regions of Queensland. Works in the Northern region covers an area from Cardwell to Bowen to the Queensland border and the Southern region covers the area from Bowen to Miriam Vale to the Queensland border. The value of works in both regions was in the vicinity of $3 million per year.
In July 2004
Ergon Energy Corporation Ltd named Thiess Services as their Preferred Contractor in the Central Queensland region. In August 2004, a contract was signed between Pole Power and Thiess Services Pty Ltd to ensure that we continue to operate as a prominent contractor on all work projects issued by Thiess Services. Pole Power still holds this contract with Thiess Services.
Also in November 2004
Pole Power was contracted by Telstra Corporation to perform ongoing maintenance of their overhead network. To read more about Pole Power, feel free to download our Company Profile.
