Another look at tidal power project

THE Gallop Government’s determination to review its predecessor’s deal to supply power to the far north of the State may yet bring tidal power to the region, but also could delay much-needed supply.

Tidal Energy Australia, promised a slice of the Kimberley supply market by the Court Government late last year, said this week it remained hopeful of new markets in the region.

The promise to Tidal Energy was always subject to further consultancy talks.

However, with the government in election mode when the Kimberley gas-fired electricity plants deal was done, nothing further was achieved and Tidal Energy was left with small-scale plans but without a contract.

Unwilling to disclose Tidal Energy’s current negotiations, the company said it was hoping to make an announcement by mid-year.

“We are doing some work but haven’t completed that yet,” a spokesman said.

“We’re looking for extra markets in the Derby region.”
