Queensland Government Supports Genex’s Kidston Project

A multi-million dollar electrical infrastructure package will begin in early 2020 in North Queensland, in a move of support from the State Government for Genex’s Kidston project.

Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, said the Queensland Government would support Genex’s project at Kidston with up to $132 million supporting 500 construction jobs.

Publicly-owned Powerlink will build a single circuit transmission line from Genex’s Kidston site to Mount Fox near Ingham, linking the hinterland to the National Electricity Market.

“North Queensland has high quality wind and hydro-electric resources and providing transmission connection is the key to sparking investment in these resources,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
