The event, which will be held at Parc y Scarlets, South Wales, is open to businesses interested in finding out about regional floating wind industry growth and participating in potential opportunities for the construction and operation of Gwynt Glas, a 1 GW offshore wind project in the Celtic Sea.

Attendance is free but registration is required which is accessible through this link.

“We are committed to working with local industry, maximising local benefits for communities and businesses and ensuring our proposal has a just transition towards net zero delivery at its core”, said Mark Hazelton, Project Director.

“Floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea presents a significant opportunity to local businesses and we are keen to speak with local businesses to communicate how the Celtic Seas leasing will not only generate renewable energy and support our energy security, but explore how this development can protect and create local jobs.”

EDF Renewables UK and DP Energy revealed the Gwynt Glas floating offshore wind project in January 2022.

The developers announced more details about the 1,500-square-kilometre site search area, together with maps in April last year.

The Gwynt Glas floating wind farm is expected to provide power for approximately 927,400 homes and contribute a significant part to the Crown Estate’s ambitions for 4 GW of capacity in the Celtic Sea, according to EDF Renewables and DP Energy.

At the end of last year, the joint venture signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Associated British Ports (ABP) to investigate the potential opportunities for manufacturing, assembly, load-out, and servicing of the 1 GW project from both Port Talbot and Milford Haven.
