Hells Gates Dam
Business Case Update 
The Hells Gates Dam Business Case is now 70% complete and continues to track on budget and on schedule for the delivery of the Final Business Case due in April 2022. Townsville Enterprise Limited signed the Grant Deed with the Queensland State Government in late October 2019. The Business Case has been funded by the Federal Government through the North Queensland Water Infrastructure Authority and is managed by the Queensland State Government though the Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water.
The Hells Gates Dam, Milestone 7 Report was delivered ahead of schedule on 29 July 2021. This milestone included the 50% Reference Design for the 3 weirs, the dam, and associated irrigation, electrical and transport infrastructure. The 50% Reference Design was completed in July 2021. It is based on the compilation of field data, modelling and analyses gathered over the 18 months leading to July 2021. The 50% Reference Design informs the suitability and functionality of the critical infrastructure that make up the Hells Gates Dam & Irrigation Scheme.

To date on the Hells Gates Dam Business Case, the
following activities have been completed and/or commenced:

  • Completion of Geotechnical Field Investigations and Interpretive Reporting
  • Progression of Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA)
  • Final Review of the Cultural Heritage Scoping Report by Traditional Owners
  • Commencement of Draft Cost Estimation
  • Commencement of Draft Business Case Report 

The 50% Reference Design has been completed for:

  • Hells Gates Dam
  • 3x Burdekin Weirs
  • Irrigation Scheme
  • Transport Infrastructure
  • Electrical and Power Infrastructure
We take this opportunity to thank the Traditional Owners of the land, the Gudjala and Gugu Badhun peoples for their cooperation, knowledge-sharing, and assistance on the project to date. Without their assistance, much of the above would not have been possible. We also thank the landowners for their ongoing cooperation on the project.

The Hells Gates Dam Business Case is ongoing, and work is underway on the final three milestones including the completion of a 100% Reference Design, an Environmental Social and Impact Assessment and the Business Case Report. The Final Business Case is due for submission in April 2022. Economic and Financial Assessment are currently being investigated and analysed to inform and develop the Final Business Case.
