Italian steel company Acciaierie d’Italia and the Falck Renewables and BlueFloat Energy´s partnership have signed a letter of intent and have established a technical working group on strategic collaboration for the development of renewable energy projects.

There are four potential development areas on which the technical working group will focus: Taranto-based Acciaierie d’Italia could provide steel and other materials for the construction of floating platforms for the offshore wind farms developed by the Falck Renewables and BlueFloat Energy consortium. In turn, these wind farms could supply Acciaierie d’Italia with renewable energy and green hydrogen.

In addition, Falck Renewables could support Acciaierie d’Italia in the construction of photovoltaic plants on land and buildings of the company inside and outside the plant for the production of renewable electricity.

Finally, the companies seek to establish a consortium involving specialised companies, polytechnics and research centers to promote the use of renewable energy for energy-intensive companies and for the technological development of an industrial supply chain for the production, in Puglia, of components for offshore wind technology.
