Altura Group and Goat Hill Project partner Delta Electricity are delighted to announce that the Goat Hill Pumped Storage Hydro Project has received Development Approval. The 230MW/1840MWh project, located 12 km west of Port Augusta will involve an investment of approximately $410 million and create about 200 jobs during construction.
With work already underway for detailed plant design and construction contracting, the Goat Hill Project is on track to be the first pumped storage hydro “shovel ready” project in South Australia. In this regard, Altura Group has already engaged SNC Lavalin, WBHO and SRG, using GE technology, on an Early Contractor Involvement basis and work is progressing well. The South Australian Government has also committed $4.7m to facilitate final project development, expediting the final investment decision.
The support of the South Australian Government, local government, the community and business partners has been vital in the project reaching this important project milestone. Altura Group and project partner Delta Electricity look forward to continuing to work toward bringing this exciting new project to South Australia.
