Overview

The Powerlink-led CopperString 2032 project, involves building 840km of new electricity transmission line from just south of Townsville in the Burdekin region to Mount Isa that will connect Queensland's North West Minerals Province (NWMP) to the National Electricity Market.


Approximately 200km of additional transmission line will also be required to connect new renewable generators to CopperString 2032. This is the largest ever economic development project in North Queensland, and one of the largest expansions to the transmission network in Australia


Powerlink, alongside construction partners the UGL CPB joint venture, will ensure that CopperString 2032 provides energy certainty to the region's growing critical minerals sector, delivering reliable, affordable and renewable power to the people, businesses and communities in the region. It will also enable the development of new renewable generation projects and related industries.


The project formerly known as CopperString 2.0, transitioned from CuString PTY LTD to Powerlink ownership in March 2023. This strategic move dovetails with the commitments of the Queensland Government as outlined in the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan.


It will connect the NWMP to the Northern Queensland Renewable Energy Zone, which has the potential to be one of the largest renewable energy zones (REZ) in Australia. This connection will form an essential part of the new Queensland SuperGrid transmission backbone to be delivered under the $62 billion Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan


Proposed project components include:

  • 500 kilovolt (kV) transmission line from just south of Townsville in the Burdekin region to Hughenden
  • 330kV transmission line from Hughenden to Cloncurry
  • 220kV transmission line from Cloncurry to Mount Isa
  • up to six new substation sites
  • access tracks and roads to the new substation and transmission line structures, as required
  • laydown and taging areas
  • site offices
  • accommodation camps
  • temporary works required to support construction
  • labour hire

DELIVERY SCHEDULE

Powerlink expects to progress early works on the project in late 2023 ahead of construction commencing in 2024. The project is expected to be completed & operational by 2029.

To date, work has focused on progressing the transmission line design, statutory approvals and engagement with landholders and other key stakeholders along the proposed alignment.


EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

Powerlink led CopperString 2023 is currently in the early stages of evaluating the market. Our main focus is on identifying local and regional businesses with the right skills and qualifications, while also adhering to industry standards and environmental regulations.


The insights we gather from the Expression of Interest (EOI) process will play a crucial role in shaping the procurement, the local content and the supplier capability development strategy specifically for the CopperString 2023 project.


Powerlink encourages local industry interested in supplying to the project to register an expression of interest (EOI) through the ICN Gateway webpage.

Please ensure that:

  • your company profile on the ICN Gateway is complete, up-to-date and accurate including electing to be notified via e-mail of supply opportunities
  • you register your interest as a full or partial scope supplier (where applicable), and
  • you respond to all project and work package-specific questions.

It is important that businesses submitting an EOI are aware that their submission does not guarantee that they will progress further in the procurement process. Only companies that can demonstrate capability and capacity in accordance with Powerlink standards will be invited to pre-qualify for specific opportunities.


FURTHER ASSISTANCE

Powerlink strongly encourages local industry to contact ICN Queensland in the first instance to improve their understanding of the EOI process.
