    Copenhagen Energy seeks enviro nod for 3-GW Aussie offshore wind project

    August 12, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      August 12 (Renewables Now) - Danish firm Copenhagen Energy on Friday presented plans envisaging the construction of a 3-GW offshore wind farm off the coast of Western Australia, the company’s second proposal in Aussie waters.

      Copenhagen Energy has filed its new proposal with the Federal Department of Water and the Environment for initial review. It hopes to kick off construction works in 2028 and produce first power from the complex in 2030.

      The Mid West Offshore Wind Farm is planned to include up to 200 turbines and six substations, to be installed between 10 km and 70 km off the town of Kalbarri, north of Geraldton. Once in operation, the complex is expected to generate electricity for about three million homes and businesses and offset up to six million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.

      In March, Copenhagen Energy unveiled plans for the Leeuwin offshore wind farm in Western Australia, also with up to 200 turbines for a total of 3 GW of capacity. The development will be sited in Geographe Bay, south of Perth.

      “Our offshore wind farms are ideally placed to contribute to the power requirements of WA into the future,” said Jasmin Bejdic, CEO of Copenhagen Energy, adding that demand for green energy in the state is “significant” as it has ambitious plans for the production of hydrogen with renewable power.

      Apart from offshore wind, Copenhagen Energy is also involved in onshore wind and solar projects across Europe.
