WAROONA RENEWABLE ENERGY LOCATION

 

LOCATION

Frontier’s Project is located strategically in the heart of the South-West of Western Australia, one of the fastest growing regional economies in Australia. The Project is approximately 120 kilometres south of the Perth, 8 kilometres southwest of the Waroona townsite and 5 kilometres east of Forrest Highway, the major traffic route linking Perth and Bunbury.

The Project’s unique location means world class supporting infrastructure, including sealed roads, high voltage electricity lines, gas pipelines, water pipelines, airports and several potential export ports are all located near the Project. Furthermore, the Project can draw on a highly skilled local workforce.

This location puts the Project ahead of other more isolated projects in the industry, minimising potential capital costs associated with establishing ancillary infrastructure and operating costs associated with housing a skilled workforce remotely.

In addition to this infrastructure, there are also several major industrial precincts, including three major alumina refineries (owned by Alcoa and S32) and two major industrial zones containing chemical and heavy industry (Kwinana and Kemerton) located in close proximity to the project. All of these businesses are strongly incentivised to decarbonise their operations.
