Electric traction DAAU 2019

Status
In effect

Aurizon Network installed and maintains electric traction infrastructure on the Blackwater and Goonyella lines of its network, which users pay for through an electric access tariff (AT5). Aurizon Network submitted a draft amending access undertaking (DAAU) seeking to alter the pricing arrangements for electric traction services in its approved 2017 access undertaking.

Aurizon Network submitted a draft amending access undertaking (DAAU) to amend the electric traction pricing arrangements in its 2017 access undertaking.

In this DAAU, Aurizon Network proposed to change the way the electric traction tariff (AT5) is calculated. Additionally, it proposed amendments in order to manage the risk associated with maintaining the electric network infrastructure.

Similar DAAUs were submitted under the 2016 access undertaking.

We received four submissions, from Aurizon Network, Aurizon Coal, BMA and Peabody.

We approved Aurizon Network’s 2019 electric traction DAAU on 18 July 2019.
