Sunrise Hills to Pacific Paradise Proposed 132 kV Corridor Study

Sunrise Hills to Pacific Paradise Proposed 132 kV Corridor Study

ENERGEX 2008 278PSA Consulting was engaged by ENERGEX to identify potential corridors for a new 132kV high voltage power line from Sunrise Hills to Pacific Paradise on the Sunshine Coast. Several options were identified for the 24 km link as well as potential sites for a new sub-station site at West Coolum. The investigation included extensive mapping and CAD work to ensure the new alignment minimised the impacts on residential communities and the environment (including the Noosa and Coolum National Parks) as well as the Maroochy Airport expansion and the proposed Sunshine Motorway duplication. A multi-criteria analysis was also undertaken to identify the optimum alignment for each link of the power line.

PSA Consulting has been engaged by ENERGEX to investigate in more detail the Sunrise Hills to Peregian North section and to prepare a business case for the proposed new power line.
