The Project

About the Project

Following the recent Southern Ocean region zone declaration by the Department of Climate Change, Energy the Environment and Water, and confirmation that the proposed location for the Cape Winds project is outside the declared Southern Ocean region, Skyborn Renewables and Australis Energy have paused the project.

Skyborn and Australis have undertaken extensive environmental and engineering work on the Cape Winds project over the past four years.

The project JV will continue to review the Cape Winds project, as it considers the area ideal for offshore windfarm development.

We appreciate the stakeholder and community contribution and feedback over the past four years of early project development.

We value the involvement and input from stakeholders and community to the project to date.


Enough clean energy to power over
1.4 million Victoria homes

The expansion into commonwealth waters would increase the total project capacity to around 2GW of clean renewable energy generation, capable of powering over 1.4 million Victorian homes.


Investigating Project Feasibility

It is anticipated that both the State and Commonwealth areas of the Cape Winds Offshore Windfarm will be constructed and operated as a single project.

The size of the wind turbines is yet to be finalised, with an anticipated capacity of around 15MW per turbine. We are actively investigating the feasibility of larger WTGs, as fewer will be required which will result in less construction activity and reduced visual impact.
