Sites revealed that may hold floating wind projects

The Crown Estate has today discovered five ‘areas of search’ for the advancement of floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea.

The Queen’s property manager predicts these areas may deliver 4GW of floating offshore wind power and power approximately 4 million houses by 2035.

The areas have been identified following technical investigation and collaboration between The Crown Estate, the UK and Welsh Government, key agencies and other stakeholders.

Work to “refine” these areas of search into smaller project evolution areas will pursue within the upcoming months.

The Crown Estate implied these project development areas will be given out to the market through a competitive tender during the middle of 2023.

“The Celtic Sea has the potential to become one of the great renewable energy basins of the world, bringing economic growth and abundant clean power.” Huub den Rooijen, Managing Director Marine at The Crown Estate, stated.

Greg Hands, Energy and Climate Change Minister, added: “We already have the largest offshore wind deployment in Europe. Floating technology is key to unlocking the full potential of our coastline.”
