About the developer:

Skyborn Renewables (formerly WPD) is part of the Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) portfolio. They are in a joint venture with Australis Energy in Australia. They have developed three offshore wind projects in Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia with a total capacity of 1.4GW.

Australis Energy and Skyborn have announced their intention to start construction on the projects by 2030. The company is a small developer with three founders based in the UK and receives support from Arup Australia Pty Ltd.
