Hill Connection Project


Piper Alderman is pleased to have advised ElectraNet on its build, own, operate and maintain (BOOM) and transmission connection arrangements with OZ Minerals.

OZ Minerals has entered into arrangements with ElectraNet to construct a new 300km transmission line and associated high voltage infrastructure to support its Prominent Hill operations.

The project will be delivered under a build, own, operate and maintain (BOOM) model and provide for transmission connection to the South Australian electricity grid. The transmission line will replace the existing BHP facility and is expected to be operational during 2020.

The Piper Alderman team was lead by Partner Martin Lovell (Picture), supported by Senior Associate Juniper Watson and Associate Mary-Anne Sotiropoulos.
