Wind Energy – Floating Wind
Tibula Energia is the name of the latest floating offshore wind farm project off the northeastern coast of Sardinia, proposed by Falck Renewables and BlueFloat Energy.
To ensure early engagement with the region the developers have set up a series of meetings with the local stakeholders before starting the Ministerial authorization process, to present the project proposal in detail and gather their feedback to be taken into account in the project design.
Key data of Tibula Energia project:
• 62 floating wind turbines, with a distance from the coast ranging from 25 to 40 kilometers. The turbines will be barely visible to the human eye from the coast;
• total installed capacity of 975 MW;
• expected annual production of more than 3.4 TWh, equivalent to the consumption of over 900,000 households;
• more than 1.6 million tonnes of CO2 avoided each year.
This project contributes towards the objective of energy transition and represents an opportunity in terms of industrial development and new skills.
