Townsville City Council has formally adopted amendments to its planning scheme, clearing the way for the mega lithium-ion battery cell factory being developed by Magnis Energy Technologies.
The amendment clears the way for the Imperium3 consortium which will build the 18 GWh plant, known as iM3TSV, to lodge a development application, expected within months.
Engineer GHD is completing detailed reports for the DA application, with the plant to be built in three stages of 6.6 GWh each according to a feasibility study submitted to the Queensland government in October.
Magnis, which owns one third of the project, is also progressing vadidation and testing programmes and project funding options.
