Wind Industry Profile of


Australia's Seadragon taking shape

Worley has been tasked with providing pre-feasibility study services to the Flotation Energy’s Seadragon project, a 1,5 GW offshore wind farm off the coast of Gippsland, Australia.

The project can become one of Australia’s first offshore wind farms and produce enough clean energy to power some one million homes and businesses across Victoria. Backed by funding from the Victoria State Government, the project has the potential to create over 1,600 jobs, providing a significant investment boost for the local economy and workforce.

“Australia has a long-established history in conventional energy. The Seadragon project will act as an energy transition bridge between the oil and gas and wind industries, bringing opportunities to retrain and upskill local workforces into renewables-focused roles,” said Christopher Cowland, Vice President Global Offshore Wind of Worley.

The proposed project site is located near older oil and gas platforms in the Bass Strait thus making synergies for the construction, operations, and maintenance phases of the offshore wind farm possible. This also offers the potential for repurposing assets no longer needed for oil and gas production to house offshore infrastructure.

Worley will provide the developer Flotation Energy with a concept design of the overall project and provide recommendations for efficient execution. The initial study is projected to take 12 weeks, with first power expected in 2030.
