Western Sydney Airport

Endeavour Energy will construct a new digital transmission substation and electrical infrastructure as part of a new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport contract, with the airport scheduled to open in 2026.

Guy Chalkley, Chief Executive Officer, Endeavour Energy, said the contract was awarded to supply a reliable, secure, and sustainable energy solution for the new airport and surroundings.

Endeavour Energy will provide electricity to the 1780ha airport site and surrounding business hubs with new electrical infrastructure and a digital transmission substation.

The high voltage indoor transmission substation will initially provide 120MVA of capacity but has the capability to grow and expand with the airport.

“As the electricity distribution network that has been powering Western Sydney for over 130 years, we are proud to power one of the largest infrastructure projects in Australia,” Mr Chalkley said. 

“Our energy solution is designed to meet Western Sydney International Airport’s requirements while also supporting the connectivity to the region which is expected to attract 1.5 million people over the next decade.”

Mr Chalkley said the new partnership would create jobs through delivery of new energy infrastructure and support the economic development of Western Sydney, Australia’s third largest economy.

“Endeavour Energy is deeply embedded in Western Sydney – we understand the region and we know what’s needed to support the growth that is rapidly unfolding here,” he said.

“This is a significant milestone in our journey from a traditional electricity network to a smarter, cleaner, more efficient energy system.”
