Plans for UK’s 1st Floating Wind Farm

Plans have been agreed for the UK’s first floating wind farm.

A 1.5GW floating offshore windfarm is being planned after a memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed by UK company Atlantis Resources and the French company Ideol.

It is hoped the project will be located next to the UK’s largest tidal stream project called MeyGen in the Pentland Firth in Scotland.

Tim Cornelius, CEO of Atlantis, commented: “To now be seeking to develop the UK’s largest floating offshore wind project alongside the development of the UK’s largest tidal stream project is truly exciting.”

The Company stated: Abundant offshore wind resources, governmental incentives and support frameworks combined with extensive oil and gas, maritime and fixed off shore wind experience will position the UK as one of the market leaders for floating projects.

Under the MoU, Atlantis Resources, will lead the review, selection and consenting of the UK sites and in attracting third party funding, while Ideol will design and provide the floating foundations.
