Galileo and Hope Group have created a joint venture to develop a 525MW floating offshore wind project in Apulia, Italy. The Project and joint venture are called Lupiae Maris, from Lupiae, the ancient Roman name of the nearby town of Lecce.
The project foresees the installation of 35 innovative floating wind turbines in the Southern Adriatic Sea between Brindisi and Lecce, each with an expected capacity of 15MW. Following the completion of environmental impact studies, including those on the seabed, birdlife, mammals, and landscape, in the coming months the project will be ready to submit the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) application. Subsequently, in the first half of 2023, the Company will launch a campaign to make a precise assessment of the wind resource at sea.
