Global energy consultancy Xodus Group has launched a three-year collaborative research project on the costs around floating offshore wind.

The study, led by Xodus through the IDCORE programme, is a collaborative partnership between the Universities of Edinburgh, Strathclyde and Exeter as well as the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS). To enable the best industry outcomes, Xodus is issuing an open call to developers and technology suppliers to engage with the study from the outset.

The study will explore the impacts of floating structures on modelling wind resource and incorporating the impact of met ocean conditions on site considerations. It will also create guidance to assist with project finance decision making and to reduce uncertainties in floating offshore wind energy yield assessments. Read more…
