The Trangie-Nevertire Irrigation Scheme is a recipient of funding under the Australian Government’s Private Irrigation Infrastructure Operators Program (PIIOP). This program aims to acquire water entitlements resulting from water savings generated from eligible projects by private irrigation infrastructure operators that improve the efficiency and productivity of water use.
In NSW, nine projects have been approved for funding of around $642 million that will improve the efficiency of irrigation systems and on-farm water use. The funding agreement for the Trangie-Nevertire Co-operative Limited Round 1 PIIOP project was executed in January 2011 and totals an amount of $115 million and will return, on average over the long term, 11,177 megalitres of water per year to the Commonwealth.
Irribiz was selected by Lining Solutions as the preferred installer of the project and as such developed many of the installation methods to suit equipment and the local environment.
