RSGx are excited to announce that we have been awarded a Contract for the construction of the Kanyirri substation.

‍The substation will be located just south of South Hedland. It is an integral part of Stage 3 (North Star to Port Hedland; 97km, 220kV single circuit) of the Pilbara Transmission Project.

‍The scope of work will include

  • The supply, fabrication, installation and testing of the 220/66/22kV KAN Substation
  • Installation and testing works at thePrincipal’s North Star Junction substation
  • Construction, brownfields tie-in and testing of a 66 kV transmission cable circuit from KAN substation to the Principal’s existing 66kV overhead powerline

RSGx State Manager, Michael O’Connell has said, “RSGx is focusing more and more on these types of project and the Pilbara Transmission Project is one of the landmark projects in Australia today. It will lead to a connected electrical capability for Fortescue’s Port Facilities.  We are delighted to have been awarded this scope to show our capability to our client and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship between both parties, built on our joint efforts to deliver this outstanding project.”


The project is expected to be completed by mid 2023.
