    RWE forms a partnership with a Spanish port for floating structures

    RWE and the Port Authority of A Coruna have teamed up to facilitate the expansion of site capacity, aligning with the Spanish Government’s goals for floating wind energy. Spain aims to install 3GW of floating offshore wind capacity by 2030 and plans to hold its inaugural auction in the Canary Islands this year.

     

    Under a Letter of Support, the partners will explore the possibility of repurposing infrastructure at the Port of Coruna, situated in north-west Spain, into a logistical center for the assembly, staging, and deployment of major components for large-scale floating offshore wind projects.

     

    Early development of port capacity will position Spain to fully leverage the potential of the floating offshore wind sector, not only domestically but also in collaboration with Portugal and across Europe.

     

    This collaboration underscores a shared commitment to exchange knowledge and expertise, fostering broader industrial advancement in Spain.

     

    Martín Fernandez Prado, Executive chairman at Port Authority of A Coruna, mentioned “We are proud that RWE, one of the world leading companies in offshore wind, supports us in our development to become a world-class logistical hub for floating offshore wind.”

     

    “Located on the main international maritime routes our deepwater port is suitable for the marshalling, assembly and deployment of main components, like floating substructures and mooring systems. We are well positioned to cover the future needs of the growing floating wind industry.”

     

    Marta Carroza Diaz, RWE Offshore Wind’s head of floating wind industrialisation & engineering, said “Port capacity and a sustainable supply chain industry are key to the deployment of commercial-scale floating offshore wind projects.”

     

    “That is why we support the Port of Coruna in its ambition to become a logistic hub for floating wind projects off the Spanish coast and beyond.”

     

    “Already today key components for European wind projects come from Spain – making the wind energy a key sector of the country’s economy, creating chances for investment, regional and national growth, and skilled jobs. Floating wind will further strength this position.”
