Australia’s first offshore wind project, the Star of the South, has narrowed down a route for the overland but underground transmission line that would connect the proposed 2,000MW of wind generation capacity to the grid in Victoria. The Star of the South, which is owned by its Australian founders and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), said the milestone decision had followed a rigorous 12-month assessment of three potential transmission route options connecting the offshore wind project, proposed for development off the south coast of Gippsland. […] Site investigations and data collection was also underway, the statement said, supported by some of Australia’s leading scientists and researchers from CSIRO, Monash, Deakin and Curtin universities.
