COP to lead the technical development of Australian 2,000 MW offshore wind project “Star of the South” in Melbourne, Victoria

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (“CIP”) and Offshore Energy Pty have today announced a partnership regarding development of the up to 2,000MW offshore wind farm “Star of the South” off the Australian south coast.

Copenhagen Offshore Partners (“COP”) will lead the technical development of the project on behalf of CIP, and will form a joint project team with Offshore Energy Pty in a project office to be set up in Melbourne, Australia from the beginning of 2018.

“We are very excited about this new opportunity for COP” says Co-CEO Henrik Scheinemann adding “The “Star of the South”-project marks the end of a fantastic 2017, where we finalised the Veja Mate project below budget and ahead of time, and opened offices in Taipei and Boston.”

We look for the very best talent in the offshore wind industry to join our agile and highly experienced team in Melbourne (Australia), Taipei (Taiwan), Boston (USA), Canada and other new markets. Copenhagen Offshore Partners is a 100% project oriented bold, lean and flat organization focused entirely on developing, constructing and operating offshore wind farms worldwide.
