A new industry partnership is set to support the UK’s floating wind industry by identifying offshore storage areas for turbines awaiting installation in the Celtic Sea.
Five areas in the Celtic Sea have recently been released for floating wind farm developments in a bid to reach the UK government’s target of generating up to 5GW of floating wind by 2030. This will have impacts on infrastructure in the region, and it is important that ports are optimised to provide local delivery for the construction, assembly, and installation of new wind farms. How and where to store turbines that have already been assembled is key to this effort.
The TS-Flow JIP brings together developers, port authorities, installers and other parties working in the Celtic Sea. The first phase of the initiative will be a technical assessment and will identify potential locations, an outline of the required permitting framework, technical constraints, and practical considerations. Subsequent phases will explore how to transform potential sites into usable locations. The TS-Flow JIP, led by Offshore Solutions Group and delivered in partnership with HR Wallingford.
