Alinta Energy examines feasibility of 1-GW wind farm in Australian waters

Last Updated on 08th January 2024

Alinta Energy, an Australian power generator, is looking into the possibility of developing a 1-gigawatt wind farm off the coast of Victoria, which might help power an aluminum smelter in the southeastern Australian state.


Alinta Energy stated that the Spinifex offshore wind farm project would cost up to AUD 4 billion.


The complex will be around 10 kilometers off the coast of Portland, in southern Victoria, and will be connected to the grid through the switchyard of the Portland Aluminium Smelter.


There will be no need for additional electricity lines to be built. The idea is still in its early phases, according to the developer, and the exact location of the turbines has yet to be chosen.


If the project is completed, the aluminum smelter will be one of the first in Australia to run entirely on renewable energy. Its implementation will be in line with the aluminum industry's efforts to reduce carbon emissions.


Alinta stated that more information on the Spinifex project will be released in the first half of 2022.
