Project Assessment Draft Report – Summary
AusNet Services is undertaking this Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) to evaluate options to maintain reliable transmission network services at Sydenham Terminal Station (SYTS).
The Project Specification Consultation Report (PSCR), which represents the first step in the RIT-T process in accordance with clause 5.16 of the National Electricity Rules (NER) and section 4.2 of the RIT-T Application Guidelines was published in December 2020. This report, the Project Assessment Draft Report (PADR), is the second stage of the RIT-T and provides information about the draft conclusions of the RIT-T.
No non-network proposals were received during the RIT-T PSCR consultation.
The preferred option to address the asset failure risk at SYTS is an integrated replacement with gas insulted switchgear (GIS).
AusNet Services welcomes written submissions on the issues and the credible options presented in this PADR. Submissions should be emailed to email@example.com on or before 4 October 2021. In the subject field, please reference ‘RIT-T PADR Sydenham Terminal Station.’
