Fortescue Decarbonisation Plan Works


Fortescue is committed to decarbonising its operations in mining, port, rail, non-process Infrastructure (NPI) and mobile fleet in the Pilbara in Western Australia to achieve real zero emissions by 2030. Fortescue’s decarbonisation plan includes development of green power generation, which consists of 2-3 GW of renewable (wind and solar) energy generation and battery storage; the renewable power generated will be transmitted to Fortescue’s electrical network via dedicated connections. 

As a key part of this plan, Genus has been awarded two contracts for the construction of civil foundations and the construction of a 220 kV single circuit overhead transmission line to transmit power from the Power Station at Fortescue's Solomon Mine to Eliwana Mine. The contracts have a combined value of ~$50 million.

Scope of Works

Genus will undertake construction of the pole civil foundations, installation of the transmission poles, conductor, OPGW and hardware with works commencing immediately. The Contracts have a combined approximate value of $50 million and are expected to be completed by mid-2025.  Genus will engage with circa 85 personnel to complete the project. 


The Project is ongoing.
