Bombora is currently in the final assembly phase of its 1.5MW mWave Pembrokeshire Demonstration Project in Wales with installation scheduled for mid-2021. Looking beyond the test and validation this year, Bombora is forging ahead with technological and commercial advancements. InSPIRE, Bombora's partnership project with global EPC contractor, TechnipFMC, to integrate mWave and wind generation on one floating offshore platform has already commenced. The first phase of the InSPIRE project will realise the demonstration of a 12MW Integrated mWave and wind floating platform. Phase two makes the leap to an industry leading 18MW. Significant gains are made from integrating mWave and wind onto a single platform. It is possible to generate 50 pct more power from seabed lease areas and 50 pct more consistent power than just offshore wind. Most important of all is the ability to accelerate the cost reduction pathway for this emerging sector, delivering a 20 pct lower cost of energy than floating offshore wind alone.
Japan aims to install 10GW of offshore wind energy by 2030 rising to between 30GW and 45GW by 2040 as part of the country's effort to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.

For the project, a Phase 1 Demonstrator will develop a 12MW platform -- combined mWave (4MW) and wind turbine (8MW) on a shared floating platform.
The commercial Phase 2 envisions 18MW combined mWave (6MW) and wind turbine (12MW) on a shared floating platform. (Source: Bombora Wave Energy, OE, 3 Dec., 2020) Contact: TechnipFMC, +31 (0)79 3293 600, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.technipfmc.com;
