A new energy partnership

Simply Blue Energy, a pioneering Celtic Sea energy developer, and Total, 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 Total

With its entry into floating offshore wind, Total confirms its ambition to contribute to the development of renewable energy worldwide. Floating offshore wind is an extremely promising and technical segment where Total brings its extensive expertise in offshore operations & maintenance. Total 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 Energy

“We are delighted to have signed the agreement with Total.  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

Developing the potential of the Celtic Sea will make a positive contribution to the UK’s target of reaching Net-Zero by 2050, whilst offering exciting new opportunities for the maritime industry throughout Wales, Cornwall and the UK.  Blue Gem Wind has established project offices in Pembroke Dock and Cornwall with wider support coming from offices in Ireland, Scotland, London and Paris. 

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.

Project Erebus

Blue Gem Wind will initially focus on a 96MW demonstration project, Erebus. Named after the famous ship built in Pembroke Dock in 1826, Erebus will become the largest floating offshore wind project in the world when constructed in 2027.
