    BlueFloat, Energy Estate to expand Victoria offshore wind project to 2.1 GW

    September 8, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 8 (Renewables Now) - Madrid-based floating wind specialist BlueFloat Energy and Australia’s Energy Estate today unveiled plans for the expansion of their Greater Gippsland wind project off the coast of Victoria, Australia, to 2.1 GW in capacity.

      Initially, the scheme envisaged the construction of a 1.3-GW bottom-fixed complex in the Bass Strait, off Victoria’s Gippsland region. The developers explained that the proposed expansion is motivated by the Aussie government’s decision to declare the Bass Strait as the first area to be assessed for offshore wind deployment.

      BlueFloat and Energy Estate noted they have carried out a detailed analysis of the project area and its offshore wind potential, taking into account the available grid capacity. “The expansion of our Gippsland project is aligned with the Victorian Government’s ambitious target for offshore wind generation,” said Simon Currie, founder of Energy Estate.

      According to local media reports, the Bass Strait Gippsland region has so far been viewed as the potential home to more than 6 GW of projects.

      Greater Gippsland is one of several offshore wind projects that Energy Estate and its Spanish partner are developing in Aussie waters. Their plans include two floating wind parks off New South Wales totalling 3 GW. Last month, the duo announced it will develop four offshore wind projects in New Zealand with a potential capacity of up to 5 GW.
