Adding to the innovative capabilities of NOJA Power distribution equipment, Synchrophasor technology was imagined and designed through university, industry and government collaboration. NOJA Power sponsors five PhD student at The University of Queensland and Deakin University (Victoria, Australia) to research and analyse better ways to connect and manage large scale renewable energy grid connections. This collaboration resulted in the RC-20 Synchrophasor capability, providing high-resolution readings of distribution powerlines and allows for control algorithms to respond to rapid changes in network parameters.

With 65% of NOJA Power staff with vocational or no tertiary qualifications, NOJA Power is also committed to education outside of university studies. Employing multiple apprentices across several departments, our apprenticeship program offers the opportunity to gain a qualification whilst working full-time. In late 2021, NOJA Power initiated an Administration Traineeship to support a Technical and Further Education (TAFE) student for a two-year program to complete a Business Administration certification. These programs ensure that all departments are supported and bringing new people and ideas to continue innovating the industry.
