The Star of the South is Australia’s first offshore wind project, proposed to be located off the south coast of Gippsland in Victoria.

The project would provide large-scale, renewable electricity generation to support Victoria’s energy transition, as well as local jobs and investment.

At 2.2 GW, it would be one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, generating enough electricity to power up to 1.2 million homes and provide around 20 percent of Victoria’s electricity needs.

The project would involve:

  • Offshore wind turbine generators (number/size to be confirmed) installed on foundations
  • Offshore transmission: array cables and export cables and up to four substations
  • Onshore transmission: 60-80 km HVAC underground cables and up to four substations
  • Grid connection to an existing Latrobe Valley terminal station
  • Upgrades to and use of ports within close proximity to support construction and operation of the project.

The project is being progressed by a local Victorian-base­­­d team with investment from Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) – a world leader in offshore wind development.
