Plans for irrigation of a large area to the east of the Clyde Dam using water from the dam had been promoted for a number of years.
The Dairy Creek Irrigation Scheme is owned by the Dairy Creek Limited Partnership; with co-investment from Pioneer Energy and Dairy Creek Irrigation Company (representing the landowners).
The primary funder of the scheme is Pioneer Energy.
Apart from the funding returns the investment offers synergies with our existing business and close proximity to Alexandra. Services required by the development, including electricity supply (2 MW for the irrigation season), Project Management Services, Asset Management/Contracting Services, fit well with our current operations.
