MEDIA RELEASE: Epuron sells 1000MW Liverpool Range Wind Farm to Tilt Renewables
Epuron is pleased to announce it has today completed the sale of the Liverpool Range Wind Farm project to Tilt Renewables Limited (“Tilt Renewables”).
The Liverpool Range Wind Farm is located approximately 370 km north-west of Sydney between the townships of Coolah and Cassilis in the Upper Hunter Region of New South Wales. The project received Development Consent from the State of NSW for up to 267 turbines in March 2018, and federal Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act approval in June 2018. When fully constructed, the project could add up to 1,000 MW of new renewable energy generation to NSW and be the largest wind farm project in Australia.
Epuron instigated the development as a green field project, from identification of the site, securing land, developing the site layouts and carrying out detailed site assessment required for development approvals. It is the eighth wind farm successfully developed by Epuron and brings its portfolio of completed wind farm development projects to over 3,000 megawatts.
"We would like to thank everyone we have worked with in the development of the Liverpool Range Wind Farm, including the involved landowners, local community, Community Consultation Committee members, local Councils, government representatives and other stakeholders" said Epuron Executive Director, Martin Poole.
"We look forward to its successful construction in the years ahead, and to seeing a major contribution to clean renewable energy supply into the NSW energy market" said Epuron Executive Director, Andrew Durran.
Together with the Rye Park Wind Farm project, also developed by Epuron, Tilt Renewables now has over 1,300 megawatts of late-stage wind farm development projects in NSW and is well placed to play a major role in helping the State transition to a greater mix of renewable energy generation over the coming years.
“We are delighted to add the Liverpool Range Wind Farm project to our development pipeline and deliver on our vision to be a leading developer and owner of renewable energy generation in Australia and New Zealand” said Deion Campbell, Tilt Renewables Chief Executive.
Tilt Renewables is now responsible for all aspects of the project. Epuron will continue to support Tilt Renewables as it works to progress the project towards construction phase.
