Floating wind partnership formed
Two offshore wind companies have joined forces to co-develop floating wind projects in Scottish waters with the highest level of local added-value.
Floating offshore wind technology company Ideol and Elicio, an offshore wind farm developer and operator, are currently preparing a joint offer for the upcoming ScotWind leasing to be launched by Crown Estate Scotland.
“Combining the track-record of Ideol in floating wind and the experience of Elicio in offshore wind offers a unique value proposition maximising certainty of a successful project development, based on the effective creation of a Scottish supply chain, a competitive LCOE and a proven floating technology,” said Paul de la Guérivière, CEO of Ideol.
With this partnership, Ideol confirms its in-house capabilities and ambitions to take on floating wind projects from the early-stage development phase. With its compact and shallow-draft Damping Pool technology, Ideol believes that a floater built in concrete in local harbours offers the only opportunity to combine cost-competitiveness, serial production and real local development.
Elicio is among the reference partners in the Norther and Otary offshore wind projects in the Belgian Nord Sea, meaning the company has two operational offshore wind farms covering the needs of almost 250,000 families yearly. Elicio is also participating in the development of the Seamade offshore wind farm, expected to be operational by the end of 2020.
