Astrotec specialise in the installation and maintenance of electrical systems in challenging environments.

With equipment becoming more complex and the environments in which we operate more demanding, it is important to know that your electrical systems are dependable.

At Astrotec we take pride in knowing that by providing our clients with the best products and years of experience, we can offer unparalleled quality electrical installations and maintenance of your critical infrastructure.

Astrotec have experience working on Antarctic icebreaker ships, as well as infrastructure used to support the expeditioners who venture to Antarctica.

We have designed and installed the electrical installations for containerised laboratories used on board RSV Nuyina and on the Antarctic mainland.  Some of these laboratories contained explosive atmospheres.

We are also working closely with the team at the Australian Antarctic Division on the design and installation of all electrical infrastructure for the Million Year Ice Core Project.

These projects have given us invaluable experience in learning about products and requirements for electrical systems in extreme cold weather environments.

Astrotec are proud members of the Tasmanian Polar Network and the Tasmanian Maritime Network.
