Ardersier Port Authority and BW Ideol have signed a formal partnership agreement. Under this agreement, BW Ideol has gained an exclusive and long-term access to Ardersier Port for the manufacturing of concrete floaters.
Both parties also have agreed to explore the set-up of a serial production line dedicated to the delivery of locally manufactured floating wind substructures based on BW Ideol’s Damping Pool technology. The Ardersier Port site comprising 400 acres of port area with access to a 2.2km quay and 350 acres of statutory harbour authority has been identified as one of three sites on the East coast of the United Kingdom with the size, scale, shape, and location capable of being an Offshore Renewable Energy Hub Port. Dredging works will commence in October with the port targeting a completion by August 2022.
