Floating wind farm proposed for Sardinia

24 May 2022

A 975 MW floating offshore wind farm off the northeastern coast of Sardinia has been proposed by Falck Renewables and BlueFloat Energy. The developers have set up a series of meetings with local stakeholders before starting the Ministerial authorisation process, to present the project proposal in detail and gather their feedback to be taken into account in the project design.

Key data of the project, to be named Tibula Energia, are:

  • 62 floating wind turbines, 25 to 40 km from the coast.
  • Expected annual production of over 3.4 TWh.
  • Over 1.6 million tonnes of CO2 emissions avoided each year.

Meetings with the local stakeholders will be carried out over the next few weeks and will focus on discussing economic and social benefits of the project, including the generation of thousands of jobs in the medium to long term, insights into the latest technological developments, innovation, research and development through collaborative schemes with Sardinia's universities, research centres and technology hubs;, and development of the local supply chain and main industrial ports.

Exploratory research into local sea and wind conditions, environmental impacts and industrial infrastructures has been underway over the past 12 months. The request for a maritime concession was submitted on 6 May and the authorisation process with the Ministry of Ecological Transition will begin in the next few weeks.
