TransGrid’s Funding for NSW/SA Interconnector

King & Wood Mallesons have advised TransGrid on all aspects of its funding for Project EnergyConnect, the new 900km interconnector between New South Wales and South Australia.

This includes a hybrid debt deal with the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (representing the green bank’s biggest ever deal), as well as a broader funding package. The project is anticipated to unlock the South Australian portfolio of renewables generation, providing a critical link to the load in New South Wales.

The KWM team advising TransGrid across the package included Tim Ma (Picture), Brendan Smith, Jo Dodd, Chloe Delahunt-Devlin, Lincoln Smith and Claudia Martin.
