Leading project shapes Australia’s energy future
If approved and constructed, it is anticipated that Star of the South will have a significant impact on Victoria's energy sector, boosting low-emissions clean energy generation.
“Although away from all the comforts of home, it was all worth it for a project that is shaping Australia’s energy future,” says Sean. “This project is a huge step forward for the offshore wind industry,” he says, “especially because it was safely executed and completed within the time allocated.”
Lawrence has been involved with the Star of the South since late 2021 as civil lead for the project’s onshore transmission system. He says, “The relationships we have built over the years working closely with members of the team have helped make WSP a trusted consultant for this valued client.”
“The hard work of every party involved has set an excellent standard for future offshore wind investigations. Being involved in this offshore geotechnical investigation has been an exciting and rewarding experience, and it is an important milestone for the project and for the industry.”
Ray rates his involvement in the project as a career highlight. “I am extremely fortunate to be part of Australia’s most advanced offshore windfarm project,” he says. “Offshore wind has been a long time coming in Australia and Star of the South is just the start of the offshore wind boom in Australia.”
