Dalrymple Scheme Report

On 10th June, 2014 the Deputy Prime Minister launched the Dalrymple Scheme Report in Townsville.  RDA has been a partner in this Australian Government funded project and report to identify electricity generation and transmission opportunities and agricultural expansion opportunities in the Dalrymple region. 

Originally known as the North and Northwest Queensland Sustainable Resource Feasibility Studies Project, the aim is to inform the continued expansion and development of the region's natural resource, agricultural and renewable energy industries.  The studies investigated additional base-load power generation capacity, a high-voltage transmission line to connect to the National Electricity Market (NEM) and an irrigated agriculture precinct to sustain new cropping opportunities with a specific emphasis on sugar production and associated processing facilities to support economic development and growth in the long term.
