The Mangoola Relocation Project involved the relocation of an existing 500 kV transmission line on Glencore’s Mangoola Mine site and surrounding land.
Relocating this section of line, which forms part of the Bayswater to Mount Piper Transmission Line, allowed for Mangoola Coal’s plan to modify the mine. Mangoola Coal is the proponent for the modified mine, while TransGrid was responsible for the relocation of the 500 kV transmission line.The Project involved:
