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.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

Scarborough Project

Woodside is proposing to develop the Scarborough gas resource through new offshore facilities connected through an approximately 430 km pipeline to a proposed brownfield expansion of the existing Pluto LNG onshore facility (Pluto Train 2).

Pluto LNG Train 2

The project comprises a proposed expansion of the Woodside-operated Pluto LNG facility through construction of a second LNG train.

Avonlie Solar Farm

The Avonlie Solar farm has a nameplate rating of 245.47MWp and consists of approximately 455,000 PV (photovoltaic) modules mounted on piers that will be driven into the existing subgrade.
