Genus has been awarded a contract with Fortescue Future Industries (FFI) for the design and construction of a 275kV substation at FFI’s Green Energy Manufacturing Centre (GEM) in Gladstone, Queensland.
Stage One of GEM is the construction of an electrolyser facility which will see Gladstone become a world leading hub for the manufacture of electrolysers. These are vital in the production of green hydrogen – a fuel containing zero carbon that can help decarbonise hard-to-abate sectors such as heavy haulage, shipping, aviation, and industry.
The substation designed and built by Genus will support GEM operations, with work commencing immediately and estimated to be completed in 2023.
Genus will engage a local workforce of 35 personnel to complete the project using local content from regional Queensland.This opportunity demonstrates that Genus has the capacity and expertise to support the national energy transition as we continue to seek to expand our footprint in this evolving market
