EDF to add floating wind capability to Blyth offshore project

EDF to add floating wind capability to Blyth offshore project:  EDF, The French energy giant, has revealed designs to add extra floating turbines to its current Blyth Offshore Demonstrator (BOD) wind farm just off the Northumberland coast.

The plan, at this moment, has a capacity of 41.5MW & the project is to set up 5 additional wind turbines that will be situated on floating structures.

The upgrade hopes to show that new technologies have the capability to lower the cost of offshore wind.

The project, that is anticipated to be fully authorised by spring 2025, is determined to develop into one of the 1st floating offshore wind farms in English waters.

Director of Offshore Wind at EDF Renewables Michele Schiavone commented: “We are very excited about this next phase of the BOD project and want to further the demonstration of construction and operation of floating turbines to show that floating wind is technically feasible and cost-competitive in water depths of 50-60 metres.”
