Project EnergyConnect (PEC), NSW

Elecnor has been contracted to build EnergyConnect, a new 700km transmission line extending from Wagga Wagga NSW to the South Australian border. This backbone infrastructure will connect customers with more renewable energy enabling a further 4950MW of generation capacity, save NSW customers $180 million a year and create 1,500 new construction jobs in regional NSW. Construction of EnergyConnect is underway in various locations across the project area.

Elecnor’s scope includes:

- The construction of two new 330kV transmission lines and one new 500kV transmission line.

- A rebuild of an existing 220kV transmission line.

- An expansion and upgrade of the existing Buronga substation- A new substation known as Dinawan, located between Jerilderie and Coleambally.

EnergyConnect, once completed, will be Australia’s largest interconnector in the Australian National Electricity Market (NEM).
