For the first time ever, multi-million dollar projects across NSW have come together to present their projects to the state's resource and construction supply chain in one placewhere attendees don't even have to leave the office.
Presented byResource Industry Media and Job Skills Network, the Connecting Industry Conference is designed to assist the resource and construction sector on the latest project and procurement information while social distancing restrictions are in place.
Based solely on procurement opportunities, the Connecting Industry Conference, sponsored by Loadscan, features some of the largest resource and construction projects in the state.
Projects presented include the Inland Rail by the Australian Rail Track Corporation; CWP Renewables Uungula Wind Farm; Carpentaria Resources Hawson's Iron; AGL's Newcastle Power Station; Clean TeQ: Sunrise Battery Materials; and the Commonwealth Government's Snowy Hydro 2.0.
Resource Industry Media managing director Kieran Moran said growth within the NSW resources and construction sector highlights the need for an event that links the state's major industries with the supply chain.
"The conference is intended to open-up new business opportunities and assist in developing business relationships during this crucial time of social distancing," he said.
The Uungula Wind Farm is proposed to be located approximately 14 kilometres east of Wellington on the land north of Lake Burrendong in the Central West-Orana Renewable Energy Zone.
The project includes a proposed 97 wind turbines and optionality for an energy storage facility and will have a generation capacity in the order of 400MW electricity with anticipated approval in early 2021. The project is anticipated to commence the approximately 2.5-year construction period in late 2021.
The Connecting Industry Conference will be held on Tuesday, December 8 from 9am to 1pm.
It will be facilitated via an event app with live video streaming to allow attendees to network with presenting projects, speakers, delegates, and sponsors.
All profits from booking/ticket fees will be going toward indigenous scholarships.
