Wind Energy – Philippines
BlueFloat Energy announced its entry to the Philippines on June 2nd, with four Wind Energy Service Contracts (WESCs) in Central, North, South Luzon, and another in Southern Mindoro.
Combined, the four sites will deliver a total of 7.6 GW to feed the power-hungry archipelago.
“We are thrilled to bring BlueFloat Energy’s expertise and experience in offshore wind energy to the Philippines. We believe that by tapping into the country’s vast clean energy potential, we can make a significant contribution towards reducing carbon emissions and fostering a sustainable future for generations to come,” Carlos Martin, CEO of BlueFloat Energy told energy journalists at a press conference on June 2nd.
“The Philippines is a source of inspiration for many countries in energy generation. President Marcos’ government is committed to low or no-carbon energy generation in which BlueFloat can help,” Carlos added.
Carlos had just come from Taiwan to reinforce BlueFloat’s Winds of September, a 1 GW offshore wind power project off the coast of Hsinchu in Taiwan. The Philippines is the latest of 4 other projects in the region. The two others are Australia (6.6 GW), and New Zealand (1.9 GW).
