Last Updated on 08th January 2024

WA Offshore Windfarm, a subsidiary of the UK-based Australis Energy Ltd, has filed plans to the Western Australia Environmental Protection Authority for an up to 300 MW offshore wind project.

 

According to the plan envisages the installation of up to 37 turbine generators around 5.5 km (3.4 miles) off the coast between Preston Beach and Myalup, in the southwestern part of the state. The 37 turbines will have capacities that will range between 8MW to 15MW; although a conclusion hasn't been reached, the developer, noted that the larger option is preferable due to the shorter construction period and limited visual impact.

 

The construction of the Western Australian (WA) Offshore Windfarm is anticipated to start in early 2025, subject to planning and environmental clearance. The plant's commissioning is expected to take place in the summer of 2026. Once completed, The plant will have an output that will be enough to cover the annual electricity consumption of over 200,000 local homes.
