The Bass Offshore Wind Energy Project, to be based in Northern Tasmania, will enhance Tasmania’s status as a global renewable energy powerhouse. BOWE will be able to scale to take advantage of Tasmania’s world-class offshore wind resources and the rapid advances in technology and lowering of offshore wind energy development costs.
Brookvale Energy’s development of an offshore wind project on the north coast of Tasmania will facilitate other strategic projects including:
- The Marinus link project
- Support the basis for the Battery of the Nation
- Provide fundamental medium and longer support to the rapidly changing NEM, and
- Provide high value green electrons to power the Bell Bay green hydrogen hub and Advanced Manufacturing Zone
All these factors support the Tasmanian Government’s global leading target of 200% renewable energy.
The BOWE project will be able to scale up to 2GW to be delivered across multiple stages (stage 1 of c.500MW).
Our team includes some of the world’s largest offshore technology companies and investors.
The project will create significant short term and long-term employment opportunities with the delivery, management and operation of the project including research, marine engineering, fabrication and construction, vessels and delivery headquarters.
BOWE will increase large scale network power supply supporting the government’s planned/supported investments in Battery of the Nation, Marinus Link and the development of a hydrogen industry. The project will also provide the State of Tasmania with greater flexibility and opportunity to manage the State’s water resources, defer major transmission upgrades, whilst mitigating the environmental and community impacts realised by onshore renewable energy projects.
