Cultana Pumped Hydro Project

EnergyAustralia with the Arup Group and Melbourne Energy Institute are conducting a feasibility study into a 225 MW pumped hydro plant using sea water on the Spencer Gulf near Port Augusta.

The initial phase, looking at the economic feasibility of building a pumped hydro facility between 100 and 250 megawatts in this location, commenced in August 2017.

Feasibility studies are expected to be completed by the end of 2018 at which time a final investment decision will be taken.

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency provided $435,000 towards the initial stage of the feasibility study and the South Australian Government and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency each contributed a further $500,000 to the next stage.
