Opened 9 Apr 2021

Overview

WA Offshore Windfarm Pty Ltd is proposing the construction, operation and decommissioning of the Western Australian Offshore Windfarm project. The project will be located approximately 5.5 km off the coast between Preston Beach and Myalup and will have a generation capacity of up to 300 MW.

The Project will comprise up to 37 offshore wind turbine generators (WTGs) with supporting offshore and onshore electrical assets to transfer energy generated by the windfarm to the existing electricity network.

Why we are consulting

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
