CopperString 2.0, the proposed high voltage transmission network to connect the State’s North West to the National Electricity Market, is expected to be “shovel-ready” by October, its project developers announced in Townsville today.
Proponents of CopperString 2.0, the proposed 1,100km high-voltage transmission line connecting the North West to the national grid, have welcomed its prioritisation by the State Government to strengthen Queensland’s plan to be a renewable and hydrogen superpower.
Proponents of CopperString 2.0, the high-voltage transmission line to connect the North West Minerals Province to the National Electricity Market near Townsville, have welcomed reforms to extend the reach and life of the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF).
The shared commitment of the Queensland and Australian Governments to the CopperString 2.0 highvoltage transmission line connecting the North West Minerals Province to the National Electricity Market (NEM) is the best way to secure more affordable, more reliable electricity and jobs for the Mount Isa and Cloncurry region.
