Question Without Notice No. 144 asked in the Legislative Council on 13 March 2019 by Hon Peter Collier

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 13 March 2019

ALBANY WAVE ENERGY PROJECT — CARNEGIE CLEAN ENERGY — TENDER PROCESS

144. Hon PETER COLLIER to the Minister for Regional Development:

I refer to the Labor government's decision to terminate its agreement with Carnegie Clean Energy to deliver the wave energy project in Albany and the fact that four of the five prospective proponents met the tender requirements, including one that partially met the requirements. Why did the minister meet with only Carnegie Clean Energy prior to the closure of the tender process and not the other proponents?

Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:

I had no meetings with any of the proponents during the tender process. It would not be appropriate for me to have meetings with them during the tender process.
