Building the world’s longest electric super highway in one state

Challenges

The Queensland Government commissioned us to build an electric superhighway with a series of fast-charging electric vehicle (EV) stations stretching from the Gold Coast to Toowoomba and up to Cairns. Our task was to design, construct and install the stations. The challenge was choosing appropriate locations and adhering to the environmental values of the project.

Solutions

We secured station sites that were convenient and no more than 200 kilometres apart to ensure drivers could reach the next charging point, managed the approvals process and completed design, procurement, construction and commissioning.

We developed a green energy solution in keeping with the environmental values of the project. The stations are carbon-neutral and enable pollutant-free transport.

Outcomes

This project demonstrates Yurika’s commitment to put Queensland at the leading edge of energy technology. Through Phase 1 of this project we’ve:

  • delivered more than 17,000kWh of green energy through 11,000 charging sessions across the network
  • helped Queensland reduce greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles – each electric vehicle charged by solar can save 2.7 to 3.8 tonnes annually
  • supported the local economy through the use of local contractors and suppliers.
