Green Volt On Track To Power UK Oil & Gas Platforms By Mid-2020s

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on offshoreWIND.biz.

This is the sub-heading.

Flotation Energy and Vårgrønn have submitted a Marine Licence application for the Green Volt floating offshore wind farm.

These two paragraphs outline the project.

This consent application could allow the project to start generating power in the mid-2020s, making it the most advanced oil and gas decarbonisation project in the UK, the developers said.

Flotation Energy and Vårgrønn are applying for a lease for Green Volt under the Crown Estate Scotland’s Innovation and Targeted Oil and Gas (INTOG) round.

Green Volt wind farm already has a web site, which gives these details of the wind farm.

  • It will be 50 miles off Peterhead.
  • 300-500 MW
  • Operational in 2027.

The offshoreWIND.biz article also says that the project has the potential to generate enough green power to electrify all major oil and gas platforms in the Outer Moray Firth area.

I can’t wait for the successful INTOG bids to be announced in April.

Engineers are creating exciting times.
