A new energy partnership

Simply Blue Group, a blue economy developer, and TotalEnergies, one of the world’s largest energy companies, have established a partnership to develop floating wind projects in waters of the Celtic Sea.

The joint venture, Blue Gem Wind was announced in March 2020 and opens a new chapter in the development of offshore energy in the UK

Patrick Pouyanné

Chairman & CEO of TotalEnergies

With its entry into floating offshore wind, TotalEnergies confirms its ambition to contribute to the development of renewable energy worldwide. Floating offshore wind is an extremely promising and technical segment where TotalEnergies brings its extensive expertise in offshore operations & maintenance. TotalEnergies has the appropriate skills to meet the technological and financial requirements that determine the success of future floating offshore developments”.

Managing Director of Simply Blue Group

“We are delighted to have signed the agreement with TotalEnergies.  Together we will progress the first stepping-stone projects that will allow the local supply chain to build up their capabilities to help deliver the larger projects that will be developed for the 2030s.  It is like being in Aberdeen in the 1960s except from Pembroke Dock we look out onto a sea that can deliver wind energy, helping the UK reach its 2050 Net-Zero target”.

Net-Zero by 2050

Floating wind is set to become a key technology in reaching Net-Zero with over 80% of the worlds wind resource in water deeper than 60 metres. Independent studies have suggested there could be as much as 50GW of electricity capacity available in the Celtic Sea waters of the UK and Ireland. Floating wind will also provide new low carbon supply chain opportunities, support coastal communities and create long-term benefits for the region

Our vision is to create a new low carbon offshore energy sector in the Celtic Sea that contributes to climate change targets, provides high skilled jobs, supply chain diversification and energy security
