Project: AFLOWT (Accelerating market uptake of Floating Offshore Wind Technology)

Timescale: 2019-2023

Funder: Interreg North-West Europe

Funding: EU FUNDING – € 14.09 m / TOTAL BUDGET – € 31.13 m

Project overview: Subject to consenting, it is planned that a full-scale floating wind turbine be deployed for testing off the west coast of Ireland at a Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) test site near Belmullet, Co. Mayo, by 2022. The project will demonstrate the survivability and cost-competitiveness of a floating offshore wind technology. It will also support the development of an active supply chain in the region which has some of the strongest wind and ocean resources in the world.

Partners:

  • The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland
  • SAIPEM SA
  • Maritime Research Institute Netherlands
  • University College Cork, National University of Ireland
  • Electricity Supply Board International
  • Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems
  • CALICYA

EMEC role: EMEC is leading the project and will support the development of the AMETS site, H&S systems and operating procedures.
