About Greater Gippsland Offshore Wind Project

The Greater Gippsland Offshore Wind Project has the capacity to generate up to 2.085 GW of electricity. It is located approximately 10 - 43 km from the Gippsland coast between Woodside Beach and Seaspray, to the southwest of Sale.


The region has been declared as Australia's first offshore wind zone. Within this area, the Project has 139 'bottom-fixed' turbines, two to four offshore substations and associated infrastructure located in Commonwealth waters. Subsea and underground landside cables will connect the Project to a new terminal station in the Giffard area, with a connection to the National Electricity Market (NEM) at either Loy Yang Power Station or Hazelwood Terminal Station in the Latrobe Valley.


Project Development Timeline

Building an offshore wind project is complex and typically takes between 6 - 11 years to carry out site feasibility (to determine the suitability of a location), obtain the necessary approvals and to be constructed.


BlueFloat Energy are currently in the feasibility, development and approvals stage of the project lifecycle. This includes required marine and landside environmental and cultural heritage surveys, ground investigations, technical design, as well as obtaining Commonwealth and State environmental and planning approvals. BlueFloat Energy expect this stage to last until around 2026, followed by two years of detailed design and Front End Engineering Design. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2028 and will last approximately two years. The Project will be operational from 2030 onwards, and include ongoing operations, monitoring and maintenance activities.


Opportunities

There are many opportunities for businesses, suppliers and contractors to be involved with the Greater Gippsland Offshore Wind Project. BlueFloat Energy are committed to building local supply chains and supporting local businesses. BlueFloat Energy encourage all businesses to submit an expression of interest if you would like to be a part of the development, construction and/or operation of this project.
