The contract is for a term of approximately three years, and the scope of work includes Owners Engineering and Project Development Support, OWC said.

The contract is valued at between USD 4 million and USD 7 million.

TotalEnergies and Simply Blue Energy established Blue Gem Wind in March 2020 to develop floating offshore wind projects in the Welsh waters of the Celtic Sea.

Shortly after that, the partnership secured seabed rights to develop the Erebus project at a site located 45 kilometres South West of the Pembrokeshire coastline. The 96 MW wind farm will feature up to 10 turbines on Principle Power’s WindFloat platforms.

Blue Gem Wind is also developing the 300 MW Valorous floating wind project located approximately 50 kilometres South West of the Pembrokeshire coastline.
