Learning through experience in Scotland
For floating offshore wind to be a long-term and sustainable solution, we need to do it right.
This means building off our decades of experience tackling similar challenges in the development of seabed-fixed offshore wind by working closely with key stakeholders – from local communities to regulatory and advisory bodies and other ocean-based industries – to find solutions.
Ørsted is already driving floating innovation in Scotland with our first large-scale 1GW floating wind development project, Stromar, with partners, Falck Renewables and Blue Float Energy.
We are also developing the 100MW Salamander project as part of a joint venture with Simply Blue Group and Subsea 7. Designed as a stepping-stone for floating wind technology developers, supply chains and stakeholders, the project is supporting the cost reduction and learning journey needed for the commercial deployment of floating offshore wind.
With these projects, and with more potential opportunities on the horizon in the Celtic Sea, we are committed to making floating a competitive renewable energy solution at scale.
What will it take to make that happen on a global level? And to cement the UK and Scotland as world leaders in floating as the industry grows in the coming decades?
