BW Ideol and Ardersier Port Energy Transition Facility Port Authority have signed a partnership agreement on securing access to the Scottish port for the production of its concrete floaters.
Under the agreement, the parties will study the creation of a serial production line for floating wind substructures based on BW Ideol’s technology.
Commenting the latest news, Paul de la Guérivière, CEO of BW Ideol, said: “The Scottish government has actively initiated the development of a large floating wind industry in Scotland through the Scotwind Leasing and the launch of a consultation for a new Sectoral Marine Plan for Offshore wind for Innovation and Targeted Oil and Gas Decarbonisation.”
“This pipeline of projects represents a unique opportunity to create a dedicated supply chain in Scotland.”
Steven Regan of Ardersier Port Authority added that “The UK has set a world leading net zero target to build back better which means building back greener. This strategic partnership allows us to work towards bringing an essential manufacturing facility to Scotland which complements our vision of using circular economy practices to deliver the United Kingdoms Energy Transition plans.”
