    Shannon Foynes Port Signed MOU with the World's Leading Floating Offshore Wind


    June 13, 2022 - Gulf Oil & Gas

     

      Shannon Foynes Port Company has stated that Ireland has the potential to not only meet its climate change targets but become one of Europe’s leading renewable energy nations as it signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with one of the world’s leaders in offshore wind generation.

      The signing of the MOU with Norwegian Offshore Wind is a further endorsement of plans to transform the Shannon Estuary into an international floating offshore wind hub that will enable Ireland surpass long-term climate change targets and, moreover, become a major global renewable energy generator.

      The MOU will enable collaboration between SFPC and offshore wind interests in Norway, providing a framework for further collaboration on market activities towards both the Irish and Norwegian offshore wind market. Moreover, the agreement provides a platform for research, development and innovation (RDI) activities for Irish and Norwegian companies.

      Norway is already a world leader in offshore wind and its government last month launched a large-scale investment plan aimed at allocating sea areas to develop 30 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2040.

      “The ports in Norway and Ireland are a vital component in the supply chain in offshore wind, and thus imperative for the countries in Northern Europe to reach their renewable ambitions,” said Arvid Nesse, General Manager of Norwegian Offshore Wind.

      “This agreement will strengthen the cooperation between the ports along the Norwegian coast and one of the hubs for floating wind in Ireland. I am convinced that the agreement will create a cooperation platform for market and RDI activities that will be mutually beneficial for Norway, Ireland and the entire industry in Northern Europe. This agreement additionally provides Norwegian companies with opportunities in the fast emerging Irish offshore wind market”,
