Date: 2019-03-22
In Scotland, the Orkney-based European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) reports it will lead the €31 million AFLOWT (Accelerating market uptake of Floating Offshore Wind Technology) project to test a full-scale floating wind turbine installed at the Atlantic Marine Energy Test Site (AMETS) facility off the west coast of Ireland. AMETS is operated by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).

The floating turbine to be tested was developed by Italian energy firm Saipem and is expected to begin operating by 2022.
