NSW Ports has joined parliamentarians, renewable energy proponents, manufacturers and investors alongside the University of Wollongong and business and industry groups at Parliament House in Canberra.
The group showcased the Illawarra’s future as a renewable energy powerhouse.
NSW Ports CEO Marika Calfas said the business’ Port Kembla precinct and the Illawarra more broadly had all the pieces of the energy puzzle to help deliver a more sustainable future.
“We recently unveiled concept plans for a large-scale port facility at Port Kembla’s Outer Harbour, which demonstrate how the port can be used to support the rapidly emerging offshore wind industry over the coming years,” she said.
“Port Kembla’s ideal location, connectivity and diverse industrial precinct makes it perfectly positioned to deliver these types of projects to support NSW’s growing renewables demand.”
