100 Jobs for 4-Year Bouldercombe Substation Rebuild
20 November, 2019
More than 100 jobs will be supported as part of a $49 million rebuild of a critical Central Queensland electricity substation.
Work has begun on rebuilding Bouldercombe Substation, which supplies electricity to Rockhampton and the wider Central Queensland region.
The four-year project will support 112 jobs and involves replacement of all primary equipment such as circuit breakers, structures and foundations as well as the installation of a new transformer on site.
The substation was first built in the 1970s and has supported industrial and residential growth in the area for more than 40 years.
The rebuild work started in November and be completed in stages to ensure the project was delivered with minimal customer impact.
The first stage is the new transformer installation, which is expected to be completed by late 2021.
Congratulations to the Queensland Government for supporting this project.
