Project Assessment Draft Report – Summary
Regulatory Investment Test – Transmission – May 2023
This Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) evaluates options to maintain reliable transmission network services at Redcliffs Terminal Station (RCTS). Publication of this Project Assessment Draft Report (PADR) represents the second step in the RIT-T process in accordance with clause 5.16 of the National Electricity Rules (NER) and section 4.2 of the RIT-T Application Guidelines . The Project Specification Consultation Report (PSCR), which represents the first step in the RIT-T process, was published in December 2022.
No non-network proposals were received during the RIT-T PSCR consultation.
The preferred option to address the asset failure risk at RCTS is an integrated replacement of the transformers that are in poor or very poor condition before the end of 2027.
