Project Details


Project Overview:


Fortescue Metals Group (Fortescue) is a global leader in the iron ore industry, recognised for its culture, innovation and industry-leading development of world class infrastructure and mining assets in the Pilbara, Western Australia.


Fortescue’s Energy Strategy focusses on implementing innovative and practical solutions to reduce emissions and ensures that the use of gas and renewable energy sources are considered during the development and replacement of power stations.


In an effort to increase the connectivity of the Pilbara to drive efficient power use, Pilbara Energy Company, a subsidiary of Fortescue, plans to develop the Pilbara Transmission Project, a high voltage power transmission network


The Project aims to integrate Fortescue’s iron ore mining and port operations in the Pilbara into one common 220kV network. This will enable Fortescue’s existing Solomon Mine power station to supply power to Fortescue’s $US2.6 billion Iron Bridge Magnetite Project, currently in development. It will also have the ability to expand and connect to other assets.


Pilbara Energy Company is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified contractors and suppliers for Project tendering opportunities on the Industry Capability Network (ICN) Gateway.   


Scope Overview:


The Pilbara Transmission Project will require the establishment of:

  • <400km high voltage transmission lines
  • 5 high voltage substations


Construction will be broken into three (3) stages:


  • Stage 1: Solomon to Iron Bridge
    • 223km
    • 220kV dual circuit
    • 4 x 220kv terminal substations
    • 2 x overhead fibre OPGW
