The Tasmanian Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the owners of the Bass Offshore Wind Energy Project (BOWE), committing both parties to work together to supply northern Tasmania with green offshore wind energy. BOWE is a gigawatt offshore wind farm proposed for Bass Strait, north-east Tasmania and owned by Equinor and Nexsphere.
 
The MOU was signed by Hon. Guy Barnett, Minister for Energy and representatives of BOWE, Ms Ingunn Svegården, Senior Vice President Renewables Asia Pacific, Equinor, and Mr Glen Kierse, CEO, Nexsphere. In addition to the supply of offshore wind energy, the agreement will also see the parties working together to assist in northern Tasmania being declared an Offshore Renewable Energy Zone by the Commonwealth Government. The parties also agree to support the growth of local jobs and economic development in northern Tasmania, the efficient planning and delivery of transmission infrastructure and port facilities, and working together on environmental issues and community consultation.
