A consortium, led by IREC, has announced the launch of BLOW (Black sea fLoating Offshore Wind), an initiative aimed at harnessing the floating offshore wind energy potential of the Black Sea. The project will implement a 5MW demonstrator in the Black Sea.
 
By coupling synergies with the oil & gas sectors, the BLOW project aims to accelerate the energy transition in the region and foster societal acceptance and cross-border policy development. The goal is to achieve an expected Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE) of 87€/MWh by 2028, and a target of 50€/MWh beyond 2030. Additionally, the consortium aims to reduce the environmental impact of the project by 40%.
 
The consortium is led by José Luis Domínguez, head of the Power Systems group at IREC, while the partners of BLOW include Eolink, Petroceltic Bulgaria, Gsp Offshore, Universitatea Maritima Din Constanta,  Beia Consult International Srl, the Centre For European Policy Studies, Bexco, Mce Gmbh, Sivas Cumhuriyet Universitesi, Denizustu Ruzgar Enerjisi Dernegi, Fraunhofer Gesellschaft Zur Forderung Der Angewandten, Forschung Ev, Acciona Generacion Renovable, and Minno-Geolozhki Universitet St Ivanrilski as well as two Associated Partners as Brunel University London and the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC).
