South Taranaki Offshore Wind Project
Elemental Group, BlueFloat Energy and Energy Estate are excited to announce their plans to construct an offshore wind farm 22 kilometres off the coast of South Taranaki. The proposed project is the first of four offshore wind projects planned by the consortium in Aotearoa with the potential to add up to 5GW of new clean energy generation.
South Taranaki is a bottom-fixed offshore wind project with the potential to generate ~900 MW of renewable electricity, the equivalent of powering nearly 440,000 homes, and create over 600 jobs in construction, operations and maintenance along with further employment opportunities throughout the supply chain.
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.
