The GEA's March Industry Update will host Eaton Place (Hummock Hill Island Development - Pacificus Tourism Project) and Australian Future Energy at the Yaralla Sports Centre on March 7.

The GEA March Industry Update will feature Eaton Place (Hummock Hill Island Development) and Australian Future Energy who’ll both highlight their potential procurement opportunities over the next three years.

Queensland’s independent coordinator-general approved Eaton Place's $1.2 billion tourism project on Hummock Hill Island in November last year. The proposal will deliver an integrated, master-planned resort on Hummock Hill Island 30km south-east of Gladstone.  Plans include tourist accommodation, holiday units, camping grounds,potential permanent housing, commercial and retail outlets, a range of community and recreation facilities including a boat ramp, cultural centre and an 18-hole golf course, and a bridge to the mainland.  Construction scheduled to start 2020.

Australian Future Energy (AFE) is a vertically integrated energy generation company utilising low value unmarketable coal.  AFE proposes to convert 1.5 million tonnes per annum of coal to produce up to 330,000 tonnes of ammonia per annum, six to eight petajoules of synthetic natural gas per annum and up to 96 megawatts of electrical power generated from waste gas and heat.  AFE estimate that 1280 indirect jobs would be created during the operational phase, generating significant additional jobs for regional suppliers and contractors as well as increased employment opportunities.
