North Queensland Bio-Energy Corporation Ltd (NQBE) and China’s Nanning Good Fortune Heavy Industry Co. Ltd (GFHI) are planning to build a biomass power plant in Queensland, Australia.

The project involves the construction of a sugar/ethanol/power generation facility. The sugar plant with crushing capacity of 2.5 million tonnes of sugar cane per annum (MTPA) producing about 330,000 tonnes of sugar, an ethanol plant with distillation capacity of 600,000 liters of ethanol per annum, and a power plant with a generation capacity of 105MW to 115MW.

The project will include the construction of fuel storage tanks, a powerhouse and a substation, the installation of boilers, turbines and generators, and the laying of transmission lines.

In June 2011, NQBE entered into an agreement with the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) for conditional approval of the project.

In July 2011, the Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) approved the project. In August 2011, the Hinchinbrook Shire Council granted preliminary approval.

In February 2012, the Queensland state government granted approval for construction of the project. The project has received all the necessary Federal, State and local Development Approvals.

In September 2013, NQBE and GFHI signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the provision of equity and supply of plant and equipment for the project.

Elecnor SA has been appointed to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services on the project with August 31, 2015 as a deadline to submit design and construction costing documents. However, the deadline was later extended to October 31, 2015.

The FEED and EPC cost documentation process is still pending.
