Project Sea Fern is a 2-gigawatt floating offshore wind farm in the Pacific Ocean off the Hunter area, which is declared by the Australian Commonwealth Government for offshore renewable energy projects.
The Sea Fern project is a collaborative effort between three partners: international floating offshore wind developer Simply Blue Group; global leader in the delivery of offshore projects and services, Subsea7; one of Australia’s leading developer and long-term owner of renewable energy generation assets, Spark Renewables.
The project is currently at the inception phase of applying for a Feasibility Licence under the Offshore Electricity Infrastructure Act 2021.
A Feasibility Licence, if granted, will enable the project team to consult and work collaboratively with the community, businesses, and industry within a 7-year period.
A development approval would be required by 2030 to start construction, with expected operations running through to the 2060s and beyond.
