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.
Floating offshore wind represents a huge opportunity for Scotland’s economy and labour force, with many tens of gigawatts of development expected over the coming decades. The initial leasing rounds for offshore wind provide promising foundations to build off. But we will only succeed in realising Scotland’s full potential as a world-leader in floating offshore wind if Scotland urgently invests in a local supply chain.
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.
A fabrication yard in China has been awarded a $76m contract to supply tower components for Dogger Bank – the world’s largest windfarm – in the UK.
Scotland has ambitious targets for its energy production. With the aim of half of our energy to be supplied from renewable sources by 2030 and for the country’s energy system to be decarbonised by 2050, this is going to need both bold and swift action. Core to the approach will be sourcing trusted partnerships which will ensure timely and effective delivery.
Eni is to offload its stakes in the 3.6GW Dogger Bank offshore wind project to its Norwegian clean energy venture Vårgrønn.
