The offshore wind farm will be operated by the Crosswind Consortium, a joint venture between energy companies Shell and Eneco, and have an overall capacity of 759MW, half of which is being purchased by Amazon to power its European operations .
The project is the e-commerce giant's largest single-site renewables project to date.
In December, Amazon announced it will invest in 26 wind and solar projects totaling 3.4GW of electricity production capacity. (Source: Amazon, PR, Energy 8 Feb., 2021) Contact: Eneco,

The report estimates that up to 85 pct of this decarbonization potential will come from offshore wind. 1,400 GW of offshore wind would power one-tenth of global electricity demand while saving over 3 billion tpy of CO2 -- equal to taking 800 million cars off the road.
OREAC is spearheaded by Orsted and Equinor, and includes other major players in the global offshore wind industry: CWind, Global Marine Group, JERA, MHI Vestas, MingYang Smart Energy, Mainstream Renewable Power, Shell, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, TenneT, and GE Renewable Energy. Additional partner organisations include Global Wind Energy Council, World Resources Institute, UN Global Compact, the Chinese Wind Energy Association and Ocean Energy Systems.

The floating photovoltaic (PV) plant will incorporate 13,500 PV modules and generate 5.8-MW of power -- roughly 2 pct of Seychelles' national power production. It will also be the world's largest salt water floating solar farm. The project's power output is expected to be purchased by the Public Utilities Corporation under a 25-year PPA.
As previously reported, Quadran and Seychelles solar company VetiverTech won the project in a 2018 tender.

Floating solar is well suited to Asia where available land is limited but there are many hydroelectric dams with existing transmission infrastructure. China has just connected the world's largest floating solar plant at Anhui, which will generate almost 78,000 MW in its first year, while South Korea expects to complete what it claims will become the world's largest floating solar plant delivering 102.5 MW in 2020.

The facility is the first commercially-operated floating solar system on the African continent as well as the largest, at 60kWp.
The first phase of the project also includes the installation of a land-based solar PV system on the farm, allowing the farm to run 90 pct of its cold storage, irrigation and wedding venue facilities off the grid.
In the second phase, battery packs will be added to the current set up, removing the estate from the main power grid completely. (Source: Capetown ETC, Mar., 2019) Contact:
