The Falck Renewables - BlueFloat Energy partnership, set up to develop floating offshore wind farms off the Italian coast, has announced the creation of Minervia Energia, an ad hoc company to develop a floating offshore wind farm off Catanzaro.
The developers have chosen Calabria as a location for the proposed 45-turbine Minervia Energia floating wind farm in the Gulf of Squillace, between 13 and 29 km from the coast. The proposed wind farm would have an installed capacity of 675 MW. The developers submitted a request for a maritime concession to the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Port System Authority of the Southern Tyrrhenian and Ionian Seas at the beginning of December 2021 and have started the preliminary consultation (scoping) process which will define the Environmental Impact Assessment study.
