STATEMENT

Hunter Workers congratulates Equinox and Oceanex for their successful application to conduct the feasibility studies required to progress the Hunter Offshore Wind Project. The application has demonstrated that our communities will be thoroughly engaged and consulted throughout this process.

Doing the energy transition right in the interests of local workers and industry will provide thousands of jobs for local workers, support local manufacturing, skills development, and economic diversity for our region.

Hunter Workers and our affiliated Unions look forward to working with the successful applicant for the benefit of Hunter Workers and our region.
