MarineSpace is leading an EIA team at the 96 MW Erebus floating offshore wind farm project, approximately 44 km southwest of Pembrokeshire, in the Welsh Celtic Sea. Blue Gem Wind, a joint venture between Simply Blue Energy and Total, is developing the project, and larger wind farms are expected to follow.

Part of the EIA team, ABPmer has been commissioned to complete the physical process impact assessment in support of the Development Consent Order Application.  As part of the assessment, ABPmer will investigate the WindFloat platform and supporting infrastructure in terms of potential effects on the wave, flow, and sediment transport regime through construction, operation, and decommissioning of the wind farm.

Tony Brooks, ABPmer’s Renewables Business Manager, said “we are very excited to be part of the Erebus team, the move to floating wind will further harness the UK’s offshore wind resource and should contribute significantly to the Government’s target of being a Net Zero emitter of carbon by 2050.
 
“We are expertly placed to deliver this element of the EIA, having provided physical processes and metocean support to over 35 other offshore wind projects around the UK and overseas.”
