Power is a critical piece of infrastructure in Onslow that needs to be further developed to ensure reliable and safe supply to the local community.
Horizon Power has commenced construction of a new modular power station for Onslow, with final commissioning of the power station scheduled for early 2018.
Site access was granted to Downer EDI Engineering and Power Pty Ltd for site clearing and establishment on 3 April 2017. All items for the power station and transmission line have been ordered, with equipment scheduled to arrive on site in September 2017.
A detailed options analysis has begun for the deployment of distributed energy resources in the form of batteries and solar. Associated construction activities for these works are scheduled to commence in 2018.
