Jim’s plan for renewable energy park sounds like an off-shelf brand for home renewables projects. The project is part of the multi-affected development in scenic of northwest Tasmania, which has been contentious. The approval of the development of the park last week by commonwealth allows the UPC/AC Renewables, which is an Australia joint-venture, to continue with the first phase of its proposal that will bring more than 1000 MW capacity of the renewable capacity to NEM.
The Tasmanian Environmental Protection Authority with The Circular Head Council, which is the local Tasmanian government body that covers the state North West, approved Jim’s Plain Renewable Energy Park to consist of 31 solar PV and wind turbines with a total capacity of 240 MW. To achieve this, it has taken hard work and support from detailed investigations to achieve the curial milestone, according to the statement of David Pollington. He is the director and the Chief Operating Officer of Australia UPC renewables.
UPC Renewables is based in Hong Kong and is a global renewables developer with a potential of 5 GW pipelines of all projects in the world. AC Energy has a 50:50 partnership with the Australian domicile company called UPC/AC Renewables Australia, the primary energy arm of largest group of businesses in the Philippines called Ayala.
By using the name UAC, the JV also in the past month announced the takeover bid for the Infigen Energy, ASX-listed, which is the Australian largest renewable energy generator. The results for the bidding war for the Infigen between Bilbao based company in Spain utility Iberdrola and UAC, which now has not decided.
The commonwealth government approved the Jim’s Plain project near Smithton, a town Tasmania on the northern coast, which will enable the UPC/ AC Renewables to concentrate on the final development. The development at the highland at Robbins Island Renewable Energy Park, which is an island with a similar name with the other on the north.
The island has 9,900 hectares of Hammond family and includes the coastal line health and pasture where beef cattle in wagyu put on fat make them from the roaring forties with a ripping wind resource. Robbins Island’s first phase will be 340 MW wind farm, while the second phase will have a development that will have 400 MW. The second phase of the project will ensure an increase in the amount of electricity. The development of the project is between Tasmania and Australia mainland, which provides the greenlight.
