    Ocean Winds secures the 1.3GW Australian offshore tender

    The Australian government has awarded Ocean Winds a feasibility license for a 150-square kilometre zone off the Gippsland coast in Victoria, marking the nation’s inaugural offshore wind tender. Ocean Winds is spearheading a 1.3GW fixed-bottom offshore wind venture.

     

    This initiative aligns with Victoria’s ambition to achieve 95% renewable energy by 2035, aiming for a minimum of 2GW offshore wind capacity by 2032, 4GW by 2035, and 9GW by 2040. Ocean Winds secured the license under its bidding entity, High Sea Wind. The High Sea Wind project is poised to catalyse opportunities for domestic industries, especially in regional areas, by fostering their growth and construction.

     

    Bautista Rodriguez, Ocean Winds Chief executive, said “We are delighted to receive this new project as a sign of trust from the Australian government towards Ocean Winds’ capabilities to successfully deliver clean offshore wind energy.”

     

    “We have a proven track record of turning offshore wind into a reality in new markets; mainly thanks to our focus on developing local supply chains, maintaining technical, environmental, and social best practices.”

     

    Rafael Munilla, ocean winds chief business development officer, added “Entering a new market and growing our secured portfolio reinforces an already strong 2024 with key accomplishments marked by the ongoing construction of 2GW of offshore wind projects around the globe, and safe operation of another 1.5GW.”

     

    “We are looking forward to bringing this experience to Australia, working hand in hand with all stakeholders, with a special focus and attention to First Nations, other sea users and local communities impacted by the project.”
