Gibson Island is located in the Brisbane River, close to the eastern coastal Brisbane suburbs of Pinkenba and Hemmant and is approximately 3km from Powerlink’s Murarrie Substation.
Connection to Powerlink Queensland’s (Powerlink) transmission network is required to enable the anticipated production of renewable hydrogen at Gibson Island. As the proposed augmentation works to connect to Powerlink’s network are funded by the project proponent, Fortescue Future Industries, this project is classified as a funded augmentation under the National Electricity Rules.
The consultation which commenced in February 2023 has been conducted in accordance with the requirements of sections 5.18 and 8.9 of the National Electricity Rules.
No submissions were received during the course of the consultation.
Powerlink’s final determination is to undertake a transmission network augmentation to enable renewable hydrogen production at Gibson Island.
The publication of the Final Report and Determination (Final Report) is the conclusion of the consultation process.
The Final Report has been made available on the AEMO website and all Notices and Reports in relation to this consultation are available on Powerlink's website.
