EDP Renewables is “actively pursuing all opportunities in relation to floating wind”, according to its project boss.
Jamie Dempster described his firm, who also hold an investment interest in floating offshore wind developer Principle Power, as “world leaders” in the sector.
He added that the Moray Firth wind developer also see the upcoming Scottish offshore wind (ScotWind) leasing round as “a big opportunity”.
Principle Power is also responsible for the floating turbine technology currently being built for the Kincardine Offshore Floating Wind Farm, off the coast of Stonehaven.
The £500 million seven-turbine development is slated for completion in 2021 and will be operated by Spanish firm Cobra Wind International.
The project, located nine miles off the coast of Aberdeen, 60% backed by a subsidiary company owned by Real Madrid.
When finished it will be the biggest floating windfarm in the world.
Mr Dempster said: “We see ourselves as world leaders in terms of the opportunity to develop the floating wind market, with a project in the works in the Gulf of Lion off the coast of France as well.
“We are already invested in the WindFloat Atlantic project off Portugal, which is a five-turbine floating wind farm.
“We see it as a big opportunity.”
