Floventis Energy has confirmed the commencement of public consultation on Llŷr 1, a test and demonstration floating wind farm located in the Celtic Sea. Llŷr 1 will be approximately 36 km from the Welsh coastline at its closest point, 55 km from Lundy Island, and 72 km from the Devon coastline.

The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for Llŷr 1 is currently in progress, and the public consultation period will run from Monday 15 January to Sunday 11 February 2024. Following this, Floventis Energy anticipates submitting an application for consent to construct and operate an offshore generating station, with deemed planning permission for onshore works under Section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989. This process is overseen by Planning and Environmental Decisions Wales on behalf of Welsh Ministers. Simultaneously, a Marine Licence, consented under Part 4 of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009, will be applied for. The Marine Licence is administered by Natural Resources Wales Marine Licensing Team. Obtaining these approvals will enable the developer to proceed with the construction and operation of Llŷr 1. Construction is expected to commence in late 2026, subject to the necessary consents. Floventis is a joint venture established in 2021 by Cierco and SBM Offshore.
