Mitsui, Bombora Partner on Wind-Wave Energy Projects (Int'l.)

In Japan, maritime merchant fleet operator Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) and Welsh marine energy developer Bombora are reporting an agreement to identify potential opportunities and applications for Bombora's mWave and wind energy projects in Japan the neighbouring area.

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. (Source: Bombora, Business News Pembrokeshire , 11 Jan., 2021) Contact: Bombora, +44 1646 233140, www.bomborawave.com

Date: 2020-12-04
UK-based wave energy converter developer Bombora Wave Energy and Netherlands-headquartered energy services provider TechnipFMC report they are partnering to work on an Integrated Semi-Submersible Platform with Innovative Renewable Energy (InSPIRE) floating offshore wind platform pairing ocean wave energy with offshore wind. The two companies will develop a floating offshore wind foundation incorporating Bombora's mWave technology that combines wave energy and wind power on a shared platform.

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.
