Genex Power Limited (ASX:GNX) (Genex or Company) welcomes the announcement from the Hon. Annastacia Palasczcuk, Queensland State Premier, in relation to the development of transmission infrastructure in North Queensland to unlock up to 2000MW of renewable projects in the region.
As part of the announcement, the Queensland Government has stated that it will commit $150m towards developing a transmission line which will allow the 250MW Kidston Pumped Storage Hydro Project and the 270MW Kidston Solar Project (Stage Two) to connect directly into the national grid.
This is a significant milestone for Genex as it secures a route to market for the renewable energy generated at Kidston. Genex will work with the government to ensure the development of the transmission assets fits in with the overall development of the Kidston Energy Hub.
