DP plans a 300 MW floating wind farm in the Celtic Sea

DP Energy has announced plans for a new floating wind farm to be developed in the Celtic Sea.

The floating offshore wind farm Gwynt Glas will have a capacity of 300 MW and is called Welsh for “blue wind”. It will be located between the coasts of West Wales and South West England and will provide energy to up to 300,000 households, according to DP Energy.

“The floating wind technology is on the threshold of one of the most important renewable technologies of the future. The industry now has to scale quickly if we want to deliver the gigawatts of green energy that is necessary to achieve our climate protection goals. Not only is Gwynt Glass important to the environmental solution, it is also a path to much-needed economic renewal for the UK, especially the coastal regions. “said Simon De Petro, CEO of DP Energy.

DP Energy has been conducting location research and detailed studies for “some time”, the result is the 1,500 km2 Location that it has chosen for this project, approximately 70 km from the coast. The site is currently being remotely surveyed for marine mammal and bird activity.

Chris Williams, Head of Development UK and New Markets at DP Energy, commented on the company’s plans:

“Our goal is to enable as much engagement as possible with key stakeholders and communities. We will work with the appropriate legal bodies and advisers in Wales, the South West and across the UK while ensuring the strongest supply partnerships. Our focus is on harnessing the skills in the country wherever possible to support the growth of UK industry. We have worked with local ports and are determined that Gwynt Glas maximizes the content of the local supply chain and brings environmental, social and economic benefits to the regions. “
