The developers of two floating wind farms secured as part of the INTOG leasing round have signed exclusivity agreements, paving the way for development later this decade.
A planning application – key to the development of a floating wind farm earmarked for off Peterhead - has been submitted to the local authority.
Electrification of oil and gas platforms not only supports lower carbon emissions offshore, but it also has huge potential to deliver energy security through power back to the UK grid, writes Flotation Energy's Barry MacLeod.
Flotation talks up Cenos and Green Volt; its next towering North Sea floating wind projects, and how it intends to ensure UK ports are involved.
Flotation Energy and Vårgrønn have filed a scoping report for the Cenos floating wind project, their second INTOG venture aimed at powering offshore oil and gas assets.
The backers of the Green Volt floating wind farm off Peterhead have submitted a key marine application ahead of a licensing award, as they look to deliver the project by the middle of the decade.
Flotation Energy is consulting on potential onshore cable routes that would link its proposed Green Volt floating wind farm with the National Grid, making landfall at Peterhead.
An interview with Allan MacAskill, Chief Technical Officer of Flotation Energy.
New proposals would see the two develop the Green Volt offshore wind farm – the world’s largest floating wind array – to provide power to the Buzzard field and the National Grid.
