Floating Power Plant

Floating Power Plant are developing a global pipeline of projects, at the head of which are 2 UK projects: Dyfed Floating Energy Park in Wales and Katanes Floating Energy Park in Scotland. DP Energy are leading the development of these projects in which the first full scale, P80, units will be deployed and operated.

Further project opportunities are being developed both in Europe and emerging markets, including traditional electricity supply and new applications in parallel markets where the power is required for on-site processes.

"DP Energy believes Floating Power Plant provides one of the most promising hybrid technologies in the sector for extracting both wave and wind energy and we have chosen to partner with them on two pilot demonstration projects in the UK leading to potential commercial project developments, each with a capacity of around 200MW."

Floating Power Plant and PLOCAN sign Memorandum of Understanding

Floating Power Plant (FPP) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with The Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN) to investigate and develop a potential deployment of FPP’s technology in the PLOCAN test facilities in Gran Canaria.

FPP intend to deploy a commercial scale version of their hybrid floating wind and wave energy device in the PLOCAN site, as well as establishing an R&D subsidiary in Gran Canaria. This will allow the technology to be proven at commercial scale, as well as providing a centre for ongoing R&D into system components, control strategies and auxiliary equipment for a number of years.

FPP and PLOCAN will now work together to assess the test facilities and identify a suitable deployment location, before conducting the necessary site studies and licensing and consenting activities. PLOCAN will also assist FPP in establishing a new R&D subsidiary in Gran Canaria and establishing an operational plan. It is anticipated that FPP’s technology could be constructed and deployed as early as late 2021.

 

Market outlook

Of the estimated 400GW offshore wind market by 2050, Floating Power Plant will be targeting 20GW, corresponding to €50bn potential revenue with the only technology to target high wave energy sites.

Offshore wind installations are moving further away from the shore and into deeper waters, due to the scarce availability of wind sites, creating a need for floating foundations. These are Floating Power Plant's key global market segments.
