Australia, Queensland: Queensland’s electricity operator Powerlink is investing $15.5 million (AUD20 million) in an overhaul of a substation in the Gladstone region in Central Queensland which feeds most of Central Queensland and major industrial sites such as the Boyne Smelter and Yarwun.

The Calvale Substation near Biloela will be upgraded with new electrical equipment, including power transformers, which is expected to extend the life span of the substation for a minimum of 15 years, reports The Gladstone Observer.

The Gladstone region is home to two of the world's largest alumina refineries. “This important work ensures continued system security and reliability to this major industrial hub and the wider Central Queensland area,” Powerlink’s CEO Merryn York said.
