A Landmark Partnership for Renewable Energy

Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners, a global leader in renewable energy infrastructure investment, has secured a substantial portion of the Lansdown Eco-Industrial Precinct in Townsville, solidifying its commitment to the green energy revolution.

A Green Oasis in the Making

Townsville City Council’s ambitious transformation of Lansdown into an advanced manufacturing and technology hub is gaining momentum with Quinbrook’s involvement.

The Future of Polysilicon Manufacturing

Quinbrook’s plan entails the construction of a cutting-edge polysilicon production facility in Lansdown, which a massive solar and battery storage project will power. 

This environmentally friendly project will harness the abundant solar energy and critical mineral resources in the Townsville region.

A Beacon of Green Innovation

Polysilicon, an essential component for solar panels and computer chips, will be produced in what Quinbrook believes could become one of the world’s most eco-friendly plants, thanks to Lansdown’s access to cost-effective renewable energy.

Green Jobs Galore

This multi-billion-dollar project is set to create over 1,000 jobs in construction and operation, providing a significant economic boost to the region.

A Collaborative Approach

Quinbrook’s partnership with Solquartz, aiming to integrate a metallurgical silicon metal processing plant into the Lansdown precinct, demonstrates their commitment to sustainable growth.

A Respected Global Player

Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill praised Quinbrook as a leading international investor in green energy, having received prestigious awards for their contributions to the industry.

A Win-Win for Townsville

Mayor Hill emphasised the potential for long-term, sustainable jobs in manufacturing and the local supply chain, further solidifying Townsville’s role in the green energy transition.

The Ideal Location

Brian Restall, Quinbrook’s Senior Director, highlighted Lansdown’s strategic advantages for large-scale manufacturing powered by renewables, including logistical support and export port access.

A Global Connection

Quinbrook’s global relationships with leading solar and battery manufacturers promise a bright future for Townsville’s green refining industry, as products manufactured in the precinct will find their way into finished solar modules and batteries worldwide.
