Pembroke Olive Downs Yurika Project
Pembroke Olive Downs Complex Construction

Pembroke Resources’ $1 billion Olive Downs steelmaking coal mine officially opened in central Queensland in April. The Pembroke Olive Downs Complex’s transmission line is a major infrastructure project that was awarded to The Betta Group by Yurika (a subsidiary of Energy Queensland).

Located in the coal-rich Bowen Basin, the Olive Downs project in its entirety also includes a coal handling and preparation plant, rail spur, train load-out facility, conveyor systems, and access roads.

Queensland Resources Minister, Scott Stewart emphasised the new development’s role in supporting Queensland’s transition to clean energy. The foundations for the transmission line was delivered by The Betta Group. The transmission line was necessary to provide the electrification and connectivity required to power and run the Pembroke Olive Downs Complex.

The foundation project was delivered on time and on budget by The Betta Group over 6 months. Further details of the project work, completed by The Betta Group:
