Both projects have been awarded funding by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA). With the 20-year Queensland government-backed Contract for Difference in place, both of the projects are expected to start construction in May 2017 and reach Commercial Operations Date in the first quarter of 2018.

As Owner’s Engineer, Entura will review designs, documentation, calculations and reports produced by the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor to ensure they are fit for purpose and in accordance with Australian standards and regulations.
