Asia-Pacific-focused renewables developer Equis Development Pte Ltd is moving forward with the first project from an up-to-800-MW wind portfolio in Tasmania, with plans to begin construction in mid-2023.
The company said so as it applauded the joint announcement from the federal, Tasmanian and Victorian governments to finance the Marinus Link interconnector between the two Aussie states.
“The Federal, Tasmanian & Victorian governments have shown real leadership to drive the Marinus project and progress the planning and engineering of this nation building initiative,” commented Damian Secen, Managing Director of Equis.
The Tasmanian wind project in question is the already-approved Low Head wind farm, the exact size of which was not disclosed. Equis estimates it will need to invest some AUD 1.5 billion (USD 942m/EUR 964m) to build all wind parks in its portfolio. The projects are spread across Northern Tasmania and the Central Highlands and are currently in early-stage development.
The company is also working on Battery Energy System Storage (BESS) projects and energy-from-waste plants in Australia.
