Australian 2.2 Gigawatt Offshore Wind Farm

Plans for a mammoth 2.2 gigawatt (GW) offshore wind farm off the southern coast of Australia have taken a crucial step forward this month after the developers announced a partnership to conduct a market study on the availability of the required labour and vessel resources.
The 2.2 GW Star of the South offshore wind farm, backed by Danish fund management company Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, has been proposed for the southeastern coast of Australia, off the Gippsland coast of Victoria, the country’s southern-most mainland state. With a potential to generate electricity for the equivalent of as many as 1.2 million households, the Star of the South could play a major part in Victoria’s drive away from fossil fuels.

Yeah getting closer, one project per state could be better than turning to Nuke :purple

That would be nice, maybe the SA govt should hitch a ride and add 100 windmills to it.

2.2GWatt is decent capacity—and being offshore effective and nameplate capacity will be closer than for onshore windfarms.

Don’t mention this in Politics of Julia will have a heart attack!

"2.2 GW" needs to be divided by atleast 3 ... and we all know that: everything else is fake news!

Not quite, DRAH. Offshore windfarms have more constant wind.

yup that's why Australia has a bit over 50 gigs of nameplate power but only use 19 gigs (per hour), every PowerStation is the same.....

Yeh,... cos, um sure that chinese sweat shops haven't been purposefuly geared up all these years to provide the wind power of the twenty-first century?

:OMG :OMG :OMG :OMG

(Hey, monk: there's almost a movie script there bro lol :beer !!!!!!!?????!)

((Could it be possible for a political internet forum to create a movie script? Somehow I think it's old hat lol :bgrin :bgrin :bgrin :bgrin :bgrin :bgrin ))

Victoria’s largest solar installation officially started:

Huge solar installation coming, hopefully, to the NT, supply the territory and Singapore and eventually the Asean grid. More later.
