    Creating energy from the sea

    May 18, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      France's Total Energies, in partnership with Duke Energy, will build an offshore wind farm off the coast of North Carolina, United States, worth US$160 million.

      The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management's offshore leasing area OCS-A 0545 in the United States called for the auction of the Carolina Long Bay project, which was awarded last week.

      The project will be located 37 kilometers offshore and the lease covers 222 square kilometers. It will have a capacity of more than 1,000 megawatts and will be able to provide energy to more than 300,000 homes.

      It is expected to come into operation in 2030, according to company information.

      This award is the second in the year for Total Energies in the United States, as last February it won a lease to develop a 3,000 megawatt capacity wind farm off the coasts of New York and New Jersey.

      "This project adds to our portfolio of more than 10 Gw (10 thousand megawatts) of gross capacity of renewable projects in operation, construction and development in the United States.

      "It is another step towards our goal of reaching 100 Gw (100 thousand megawatts) of renewable electricity generation worldwide by 2030," said Patrick Pouyanné, president and CEO of Total Energies.

      The Carolina Long Bay project is part of the U.S. government's goal to install 30,000 megawatts of offshore wind power capacity by 2030.
