Celtic Freeport Requires Decisive Motion on FLOW Ports

The Celtic Freeport bid consortium reacted to the publication of the report by the Floating Wind Offshore Wind Taskforce, which beneficial accelerating large-scale funding in two ports in Wales to help the roll-out of floating offshore wind within the Celtic Sea.

A report by the Floating Wind Offshore Wind Taskforce says as much as 11 ports across the UK – with two in Wales – will have to be reworked as quick as attainable into new industrial hubs to allow the roll-out of floating offshore wind at scale.

The report incorporates a collection of suggestions which may see 34GW of floating wind put in in UK waters by 2040, if the Authorities takes swift and decisive motion. At current, the UK has a goal of 5GW by 2030.

Roger Maggs MBE, Chair of the Celtic Freeport bid consortium:

“The Floating Wind Offshore Wind Taskforce’s conclusions are clear.  If the UK needs to maximise the floating offshore wind revolution, we can’t be passive, and should transfer instantly.

“The UK and Welsh governments have to act decisively and again two upgraded inexperienced power ports at Port Talbot and Milford Haven.

“The number of the Celtic Freeport bid will ship a crystal clear world market sign that Wales is able to help this quick growing inexperienced ecosystem wealthy in manufacturing, operations and upkeep alternatives for future generations.

“We take coronary heart from the assertion from Welsh Authorities earlier this week that it’s: ‘….. formidable for the floating offshore wind sector in Wales – we imagine it has the potential to ship sustainable sources of power into the longer term and it is usually a once-in-a-generation alternative to open up new markets for native suppliers and to create hundreds of high-quality jobs in Wales.’

“A chance to maneuver instantly exists, because the imaginative and prescient and aims of the Celtic Freeport are precisely these expressed on this Welsh Authorities assertion.”
