Flavian pumped hydro project elements

Onsite energy production

The Flavian pumped hydro project is planned to include the following onsite elements: 

  • upper and lower water reservoir

  • underground pipe connecting the two water reservoirs

  • pumping equipment

  • energy generating equipment, including underground hydro turbines

  • electricity connections, including inbound and outbound transmission infrastructure and lines

  • underground water pipeline to the site from an independent water source

Sunshine Hydro is not proposing to include other onsite infrastructure, such as:

  • wind energy generation

  • solar energy generation

We are proposing to deliver renewable energy into our pumped hydro project; however, these energy sources will not be onsite or located nearby. 

Offsite infrastructure ​

Offsite infrastructure works will likely be required to support the project, which will bring additional local community benefits. 

All infrastructure requirements will be confirmed in the coming months as more detailed planning is undertaken and a Development Application is prepared. 

Project footprint

At this early stage of planning and design, we only have preliminary layout concepts.

The proposed layout of the project will be shared when this is further developed, and closer to what we will propose through a future Development Application. 

We commit to describing the proposed design and layout as soon as possible, as part of our future stakeholder engagement program.


We are not close to lodging a Development Application.
