Goyder South Hybrid Renewable Energy Facility – Overhead Transmission Line and Substation

Display of Final Preliminary Documentation (EPBC 2021/8959)

Under Section 95B(2) of the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).

Neoen is proposing to develop a hybrid renewable energy project comprising wind, solar and battery technology. The project will be constructed in stages with the first stage comprising approximately one third of the wind turbines, a substation, an overhead transmission line and a battery/grid connection.

Goyder South Overhead Transmission Line (OTL) and Substation, which is proposing to construct a new substation (located approximately 10km south of Burra, SA) and a transmission line (through the Worlds End valley) which will connect the new sub-station to the existing Robertstown Substation (located approximately 5km north-east of Robertstown, SA). This action is proposed by the legal entity Goyder Wind Farm Common Asset Pty Ltd where the parent company is Neoen Australia Pty Ltd.

This project has been determined to be a controlled action and will be assessed by preliminary documentation. The proposed action has the potential to have an impact on Listed Threatened Species and Communities (s18 and s18A) which are protected under Part 3 of the EPBC Act.

The draft Preliminary Documentation was placed on public exhibition from 4th May to the 18th May 2022 (10 business days). During this time one submission was received. A “Response to Submissions” report summarising and responding to these comments has been prepared and the Preliminary Documentation finalised.
