The Middle Arm Battery project is an early works package that will later form part of the Australia-ASEAN Power Link (AAPL) project.
Project design is scheduled to start in 3rd Qtr 2020. On-site works for establishment and land clearing in Q2 2021, with the Battery to be commissioned and online in Q2 2022.
The project is proposed to be sited east of the existing Weddell Power Station, with an installed capacity of 50MW scalable to 500MW. The project is designed to provide active power and ancillary services to the Darwin-Katherine Integrated System.
The project is scheduled for commissioning in 2022, with a 12 month construction period. This will require a notice to proceed in the dry season of 2021 for civil works, with potential for enabling works in late 2020.
The enabling work, including access and benching of the site, may include the land required for the larger AAPL Project.
