Queensland $ 23 Million Renewable Energy Center Green Lights

The Queensland government has approved a plan for a new, state-of-the-art training facility in Brisbane for rapid monitoring of specialist training to develop professionals and electricians in renewable energy technologies.

Queensland Planning Minister Steven Miles has given the green light to the construction of the Pinkenba Renewable Energy Training Facility, naming it ‘Ministerial Infrastructure’ to continue construction.

“The specialized training facility offers pre-business, training and post-business courses for up to 300 students at a time and supports 40 teaching spaces,” Miles said.

While investing in renewable energy projects throughout the state, it is also important to invest in our manpower to deliver and maintain renewable energy infrastructure.

“The Ministerial Infrastructure Design Team will allow the construction team to begin and accept students quickly,” Miles added.

Queensland’s Minister of Renewable Energy and Hydrogen, Mike de Brenny, said the new facility would train Queenslanders with new clean energy technologies and provide the state with the skills needed to achieve its 2030 renewable energy goals.

“The fulfillment of our renewable energy goal depends on the availability of trained Queenslanders pipelines that are ready to build and operate the energy needs of the growing industrial state,” de Brenney said.

This is exactly what Pinkenba’s renewable energy training center, which provides electricity, solar and telecommunications training to hundreds of Queenslanders each year, has to offer.

The facility is operated by an electro-group, and the new training facility will provide students with real-world conditions and will include operating solar farms and wind turbines to provide manual training.

This facility will prove to be a challenge for our electricity industry as it opens up more opportunities for international investors in Queensland. Electro Group CEO Donna Picford said.

Our institute provides classroom training and field training to electricians, featuring a 17-meter-high wind turbine, a 20-meter-high tower, a 30-meter telecommunications tower, and a 54-kilowatt single-pole tracking system.

Pickford added: “Being able to provide this present and future electrician with this hands-on experience means that they will be fully prepared for tomorrow’s work.”

The Queensland State Government will contribute $ 17 million to the VV-19 as part of the Government’s economic response to the $ 23 million project, which will benefit from an accelerated planning process for community infrastructure, including schools and educational institutions. .

Construction on the new Renewable Energy Training Center in Pinkenba Brisbane is expected in September, and the first students will begin training in mid-2022.
