Bureau Veritas (BV) has been selected to undertake the project certification of Erebus, the first floating offshore wind farm in the Celtic Sea, in Wales (UK). Located 44km from the Pembrokeshire coastline in up to 75m water depth, the Erebus project aims to be fully operational by 2026 and will deliver up to 100MW of clean energy.
The Erebus project is the result of TotalEnergies teaming up with Simply Blue Group in a Joint Venture named Blue Gem Wind. Principle Power will design the floating platforms, based on its Windfloat technology. This floater concept received an “Approval in Principle” from BV in 2016. The ballasted, semi-submersible, three-column platform is moored with a five-line catenary mooring system and is equipped with a closed-loop ballast system to compensate for changes in mean wind velocity and direction. The scope of the evaluation includes all the design phases: site condition assessment, design basis evaluation, integrated load analysis and detailed design evaluation for all the components of the floating wind turbines, including the inter-array cables.
