Powerlink has been engaged by Shell to connect the 120MW Gangarri Solar Farm to the transmission network. Situated in Woleebee near Wandoan, the solar farm will generate energy to power around 50,000 homes. Powerlink has built a short section of new transmission line to connect the solar farm to the existing Wandoan South Substation.
Powerlink’s construction activities commenced in May 2020. Final commissioning works are expected to be completed by late 2021 (weather dependent).
