Final

ElectraNet has established a new exit point at its Davenport substation, the Davenport MGS exit point, to supply the OZ Minerals Carrapateena and Prominent Hill Mine sites. This will replace the temporary Mt Gunson South exit point.

Following consultation, the Commission made a final decision that a Category 1 reliability standard, the lowest provided for in the Electricity Transmission Code, will apply to the new exit point, and the Mt Gunson exit point will be removed from the Electricity Transmission Code.

The Code variations directly affect two stakeholders, ElectraNet and OZ Minerals. The new Davenport MGS exit point will be energised between August and October 2020.

The Commission’s reasons are set out in the Final Decision.
