Crown Irrigation Overview
The information set out on this page is summary guidance only regarding the mandate of Crown Irrigation Investments Limited (Crown Irrigation). It may be amended, updated or supplemented from time to time. Sponsors of prospective irrigation schemes and other interested parties are encouraged to contact Crown Irrigation directly.
Crown Irrigation has a mandate and funding to support regional scheme development by providing development grant funding, and co-investing to enable schemes to undertake construction.
The timeline diagram below illustrates the phases of development for a typical irrigation scheme. Stop/go points at each phase mean that successive phases of development funding are contingent upon increasingly robust demonstrations of a project’s commercial viability.
Crown Irrigation regional schemes through several key phases of the development and construction timeline: phases two through seven (scoping study through to operations demand ramp-up).
Crown irrigation provides support through:
Grant funding during phases two to five for development work prior to project construction commencement.
Investment funding with some concessionary terms during phases six to seven for construction and operations demand ramp-up.
Commercial leadership and guidance during all phases.
