Vena Energy to develop 2,000MW offshore wind project in Australia
The project will be located off the Victorian Coast in the Gippsland Basin.
Vena Energy announced its plans to develop the 2,000-megawatt Blue Marlin Offshore Wind project off the Victorian Coast in the Gippsland Basin.
The project will begin construction in 2028. It will be 23km off the coast to take advantage of stronger winds. This will also minimise visual impact.
“Recent changes in regulation and market landscape has highlighted the importance of offshore wind as a large-scale renewable energy source that has the potential to deliver improved security of supply, greater diversity in the energy mix, and better outcomes for electricity consumers,” Owen Sela, Head of Vena Energy in Australia, said.
“Climate change presents a real and ever-present threat to the environment, as well as our way of life, and Vena Energy is committed to accelerating the development of innovative renewable energy projects and generation of clean, sustainable energy in Australia,” he also said.
