Project Assessment Conclusions Report – Summary
Regulatory Investment Test – Transmission – September 2023
AusNet Services undertook this Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) to evaluate options to maintain reliable transmission network services at Redcliffs Terminal Station (RCTS).
The Project Specification Consultation Report (PSCR), which represents the first step in the RIT-T process was published in December 2022 and the succeeding Project Assessment Draft Report (PADR) was published in May 2023. Publication of this Project Assessment Conclusions Report (PACR) represents the third and final 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.
No non-network proposal has been received during the RIT-T consultation.
The preferred option to address the asset failure risk at RCTS is an integrated replacement of the transformers that are in poor or very poor condition by 2028/29.
