Floventis Energy Picks Owner’s Engineer for Llŷr Floating Offshore Wind Farms
Floventis Energy has awarded Kent an Owner’s Engineer contract for its Llŷr 1 and 2 offshore wind farms in the Celtic Sea.
On this project and in partnership with Vekta Group, Kent will provide multidisciplinary Owner’s Engineer support, covering CDM, hull and mooring, electrical, WTG, site layout, geotechnical, metocean, and project management.
“We are proud to be part of this project, which is paving the way toward the commercialisation of floating wind and, therefore, a cleaner and greener future for everyone. We are very excited to be a part of the transition and look forward to working with Floventis on this milestone project”, said Cerianne Cummings, Kent’s Offshore Wind Market Director.
Llŷr offshore wind farm sites are located off the Pembrokeshire coast, in the approaches to the Bristol Channel, approximately 40 kilometres offshore at depths averaging 60-70 metres.
The two 100 MW projects are progressing through pre-FEED, expecting to reach a commercial operation date by 2027.
The wind farms are planned to feature six to eight next-generation wind turbines and are expected to provide enough renewable electricity to power 200,000 homes in the region.
Floventis Energy, a joint venture between SBM Offshore and Cierco, was chosen to build the two floating wind projects in July 2021 in the Crown Estate’s leasing opportunity for early commercial-scale floating wind projects in the Celtic Sea.
