Hengtong Cable Australia (HCA) will be supplying United Group, 52km of flexible LV, 34km of Earth and 24km of 33kV to its Stage 2 Collie BESS project.

Neoen has been awarded a 300 MW / 4-hour capacity services contract by the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) in a competitive tender initiated by the Western Australian Coordinator of Energy. 

The service will be delivered by Stage 2 of Collie Battery, which is sized at 341 MW / 1,363 MWh and consists of 348 Tesla Megapack 2 XL units. 

The project is located near the town of Collie, Southwest region of Western Australia (WA). It will connect to Western Power’s new Palmer Terminal substation in the South-West Interconnected System (SWIS), a separate network to the one on the eastern coast of Australia. Neoen has provided notices to proceed to Tesla and construction contractor UGL (a member of the CIMIC Group), signalling the start of construction for Stage 2 of Collie Battery, which is expected to be operational in Q4 2025.
