Lupiae Maris, the joint venture that plans to develop a 525MW floating offshore wind project in Apulia (Italy), has filed an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) application to the Italian Ministry of Environment and Energy Security and to the Ministry of Culture.
Such an application is a necessary step towards obtaining planning permission (Autorizzazione Unica) to build and operate the plant. Lupiae Maris foresees the installation of 35 floating wind turbines in the Southern Adriatic Sea, largely off the coasts of Brindisi and Lecce. Lupiae Maris is a joint venture between Hope Group, an Apulia-based developer, and Galileo, a pan-European platform for renewable energy development. The partners will launch a campaign in spring 2023 to precisely assess the wind resource at sea.
