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

The project is a joint development by Australian founders and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) – a global leader in offshore wind.

The Star of the South project involves:

  • Wind turbines and offshore substations in the ocean (see licence area on map)
  • Subsea cables to transfer energy to the coast
  • A transmission network of cables and substations connecting to the Latrobe Valley.

In addition, upgrades to ports to allow for construction and operation may be required.
