Wind Energy – Partnership
RWE and Tata Steel have committed to work together to support the delivery of floating wind structures in the Celtic Sea from Tata Steel’s South Wales facilities.
The partnership demonstrates the shared commitment of the two companies to develop clean energy while maximising economic growth for Wales.
The industry leaders will work together to identify the steel components that could be supplied from Tata Steel in floating wind technologies in the gigawatt-scale floating offshore wind projects in the Celtic Sea.
The co-operation agreement will allow the two companies to share knowledge and expertise and demonstrate the shared commitment to supporting the wider industrial decarbonisation and economic development of Wales.
The steelworks in Port Talbot has been the cornerstone of British manufacturing for over a hundred years and Tata Steel continues to be the beating heart of Welsh industry with over 5,000 people directly employed across its sites in Wales.
RWE is proposing to deploy a pipeline of gigawatt-scale floating wind projects in the Celtic Sea as part of the Crown Estate’s upcoming leasing round.
If successful, the projects will form a key part of RWE’s innovative decarbonisation hub, Pembroke Net Zero Centre, bringing together all areas of RWE’s decarbonisation expertise and supporting the transition to net zero in South Wales.
