- Site selection process
The site selection and design stage comes after the completion of the technical assessment.
In this stage:
The facility's design will be tailored to the specific environmental and geological characteristics of the chosen location.
The final design must meet stringent requirements and will be influenced by elements of other well-established international facilities.
Construction is expected to take about two years and will generate jobs. It will be consistent with community requirements and will create local business opportunities.
Should the project proceed to the construction stage, contracts for the facility's construction will be completed in line with Commonwealth Procurement Rules and the Australian Industry Participation (AIP) policies and programmes which encourage full, fair and reasonable opportunity for Australian industry to compete for work in major public and private projects in Australia.
