In addition to being the primary electrical contractor, Southern Cross mobilised a large instrumentation team and the services of two instrument laboratories for the large instrumentation scope of work. The team also engaged many locally sourced instrument technicians to contribute to the local community. The complex control system required specialist and dedicated crews to cover different tasks in different areas.

In the peak of the construction stage of the project the Instrument department of SCEE was operating with 3-4 separate instrument area crews and reached its top number of 20-25 instrument personnel including an instrument engineer, instrument technicians, instrument fitters, dual traders and supporting crew of boilermakers and T/As.
