Infigen welcomes Powering North Queensland Plan
2 June 2017
Infigen Energy (Infigen) today welcomed the announcement by the Palaszczuk government in Queensland that it would invest $386 million into the Powering North Queensland plan. The plan is intended to unlock a wave of energy projects to power the North Queensland economy and support 5,000 jobs.
Infigen is developing the Forsayth wind farm project in the region where the investment in strategic transmission infrastructure is to be undertaken under the plan. Forsayth currently has a planned capacity of 75 MW, which was limited by the existing transmission infrastructure. This investment will allow Infigen to assess the opportunity to significantly increase the size of the project.
Infigen’s Managing Director, Ross Rolfe said, “It is pleasing to see the State of Queensland investing in infrastructure that can unlock its substantial renewable resources. There are many other renewable resources across the country that could benefit from similar strategic investments. I applaud the Palaszczuk government for its leadership in this area.”
