EDF Renewables is announcing a joint venture partnership with DP Energy to generate up to 1GW of low carbon green energy in the Celtic Sea. The project is likely to span English and Welsh waters.
The floating offshore wind project called ‘Gwynt Glas’ will provide power for approximately 927,400 homes. Work including identification of a refined area of search and detailed constraint studies for the proposed location of the project are already underway. An area of interest encompassing some 1,500km2 has been identified, approximately 70km from the shore, with initial remote aerial surveys for marine mammal and birds taking place since Spring 2021. The project team will be consulting with key stakeholders and interested parties in the coming weeks to refine the proposed site location.
