Renexia Awards FEED Contract for 2.8 GW Floating Wind Project in Italy
Renexia has selected Technip Energies to perform the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for the Med Wind floating offshore wind project in the Italian Mediterranean.
The scope of work covers the FEED for the 190 floating foundations and moorings for the wind turbines and the conceptual design for the floating offshore substations.
The design of the floating foundation will be based on Technip Energies’ in-house floater technology INO15™, a three-column semi-submersible floater that is well suited for large series production, the company said.
Located 60 kilometres off the Italian coast, Med Wind will feature 190 turbines installed on a site covering 850 square kilometres.
Renexia picked RINA to prepare an environmental impact assessment (EIA) and other related studies for the project.
Back in September, Fugro won the contract to carry out marine geophysical and environmental surveys for the project.
Construction of the 2.8 GW floating offshore wind project is expected to start by 2025, with commissioning planned on 1 January 2026.
To remind, the first offshore wind farm built in Italy, as well as the first such project in the Mediterranean, was completed, commissioned, and inaugurated earlier this year.
The 30 MW Beleolico offshore wind farm, which features ten MySE3.0-135 turbines delivered by MingYang Smart Energy, was also developed by Renexia.
