South Auckland-Waikato Offshore Wind Project

Following last week´s announcement of our South Taranaki project, the consortium formed by BlueFloat Energy, Energy Estate & Elemental Group Limited is thrilled to reveal their Waikato Offshore Wind project – a second investment in Aotearoa and part of its nation-wide programme to develop up to 5GW of offshore wind in New Zealand.

The Waikato Offshore Wind farm will be developed in phases to a capacity of up to 1.4 GW, using both fixed and floating foundation technology. This will contribute significantly to NZ’s net-zero journey, enabling social and environmental outcomes while powering large load areas such as Glenbrook, South Auckland, and Waikato, with the potential for Huntly to become a green energy hub.

You can now see what it will look like from the shore during the day and night. Check the visual simulation on the project website.

Together, we can harness our most abundant resource.
