OVERVIEW

The Bristol Springs Solar Project (BSS Project) is a large-scale solar energy project located in the south-west of Western Australia. The BSS Project is designed to initially produce 114 MW of electricity, utilising well-established technology to deliver a relatively low-cost energy solution connected into the backbone of the southwest Interconnected System (SWIS).

Development application approval has been granted and an electricity connection application is in progress with Western Power. Additional land acquisition opportunities are available to allow for an increase in solar power generation up to ~500 MW.

The Project is ideally located in close proximity to multiple major infrastructure projects that both accelerate the time to first production and reduce the overall capital cost. These include:

330kV, 132kV and 66kV lines

  • >4km of Bristol Springs
  • Connected to SWIS

Landwehr Power Terminal

  • 33/330kV transformer
  • Connected to the SWIS which connects 2.3M customers in Western Australia
  • 3.5km from Bristol Springs

Gas Branching Point

  • Dampier – Bunbury Pipeline (DBNGP)
  • One of the largest capacity natural gas pipelines in Australia
  • Study to include Hydrogen – underway (AGIG)
  • 3km from Bristol Springs

Ports

  • 4 World class ports (Bunbury/Kwinana/Henderson/Fremantle)
  • All within 110km from Bristol Springs

Skilled Workforce

  • +160,000 people within 60km from Bristol Springs
  • Bunbury – 71,000 / Mandurah 88,000 / Waroona 5,000

Roads

  • 5km from Forrest Hwy
  • Major road connecting SW WA
