Powerlink has been engaged to connect Neoen’s Western Downs Green Power Hub to the existing Western Downs Substation. The 400MW renewable energy hub is located south-east of Chinchilla and is expected to generate energy to power around 235,000 homes. The project involved building six kilometres of transmission line and associated substation connection works.
Powerlink's construction works for the connection project were completed during 2021. Final testing and commissioning activities will occur during 2022.
