BlueFloat Energy and Origin form offshore wind partnership in the Hunter


Tuesday, 19th December, 2023. BlueFloat Energy and Origin Energy have announced a partnership and applied for a Feasibility Licence to develop the Eastern Rise Offshore Wind Project in the declared Hunter offshore wind zone.

The partnership brings together BlueFloat Energy’s highly respected international technical capabilities in developing floating wind projects with Origin’s well entrenched and considerable Australian energy market experience.

This is an exciting alliance, as Australia moves towards an energy future based around renewables especially from offshore wind production.

The partnership submitted a Feasibility Licence application in November and the Federal Government is expected to announce successful applicants next year.

Both companies pride themselves on engagement with stakeholders, including local communities, energy consumers, Traditional Custodians and governments. The Eastern Rise Offshore Wind Project will continue to consult widely and with respect.

The proposed project is located off the Hunter-Port Stephens coast and has the capacity to generate 1.725GW of renewable electricity, the equivalent of powering approximately 825,000 homes.
