Project Information

New Energy will provide a centralised facility close to key infrastructure and distant from residential areas.


New Energy consulted local councils in the Pilbara, and the Department of State Development, to find the best location for the project. Three sites were initially identified for investigation – the Burrup Peninsula, the Maitland Industrial Estate and the Boodarie Industrial Estate at Port Hedland.

New Energy Pilbara Project Location Map

The Boodarie Industrial Estate has proved to be the best location on the following grounds:

  • Proximity to major road transport routes
  • Access to major existing power infrastructure
  • Location within the regional power generation industry precinct
  • Proximity to major regional sources of waste
  • Good separation from the nearest residential land (approx 6km)
  • Alignment with the Port Hedland Land Use Master Plan

  • Supports planned population growth for the region
  • Provides electricity to power 21,000 homes
  • Supports waste management for large industrial projects
  • Replaces old and inadequate waste infrastructure that relies on unsustainable landfill
  • Creates 30 full-time local jobs

Project Features

  • Thermal capacity of 72MW
  • Waste capacity from 70,000 to 130,000 tonnes per annum
  • Electrical generation capacity of up to 18MW
  • Electrical export of 15.5MW to the grid
