Entura to continue to support renewable energy in the Pacific with appointment to AIFFP panel
November 12, 2020
Entura is pleased to announce that we have been appointed by Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to join the panel of preferred service providers for the Australian Infrastructure Financing Facility for the Pacific (AIFFP).
Our successful appointment attests to the strong reputation we have built in the sector for our contributions to creating safe and sustainable power and water solutions in the Pacific over many years.
The appointment positions Entura as a preferred supplier for client-side project management services in the region, and is likely to secure us a pipeline of power and water projects in the Pacific over the next five to ten years.
The AIFFP is a new initiative for the Australian Government as part of Australia’s ‘Pacific Step-Up’. It will form partnerships with governments and the private sector in the Pacific and Timor-Leste to provide grant and loan financing for transformational energy, water, transport, telecommunications and other infrastructure.
Projects supported by the AIFFP are already underway in Timor Leste, Papua New Guinea, Palau and Fiji.
Entura has worked extensively in the Pacific, and is currently involved in projects in the Solomon Islands, Tonga, Samoa, Cook Islands, Tuvalu and the Federated States of Micronesia.
“Entura’s vision is to create safe and sustainable power and water solutions that make positive and enduring contributions to our clients and to communities throughout the Indo-Pacific region, and we are eager to continue supporting our Pacific neighbours to achieve their energy and climate goals,” said Tammy Chu, Entura’s Managing Director.
