Asian Renewable Energy Hub – Change to Proposal

Closed 2 Jan 2019

Opened 18 Dec 2018

Overview

NW Interconnected Power Pty Ltd has requested a Change to Proposal through section 43A of the Environmental Protection Act 1987. NW Interconnected Power Pty Ltd proposes the following changes to the Asian Renewable Energy Hub Proposal:

  • An increase in native vegetation clearing from 7,370 hectares (ha) at referral to 11, 962 ha (i.e. an increase in native vegetation clearing of 4, 592 ha). This equates to an increase of 0.7 per cent within the development envelope.
  • An increase in the number of export cables from two to four which requires an increase in the temporary disturbance to the sea bed from 3 ha to 15.3 ha. The location of the cable corridor is unchanged.

Why We Are Consulting

Proposed changes to this proposal are being advertised to allow public comment before a decision on the requested section 43A change is made.

What Happens Next

Following the public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will determine if it consents to the proponent changing the proposal without a revised proposal being referred.
