IberBlue will develop a 990 MW floating wind project in Andalusia (Spain)

22 Nov 2022

The renewable energy company IberBlue Wind, a joint venture between Irish company Simply Blue Group and Spanish companies Proes Consultores, Amper Group, and FF NEV, has announced plans to develop a 990 MW floating offshore wind project in the Alboran Sea (western Mediterranean). The wind park will be located between 25 and 40 km off the coast of Cadiz and Malaga in Andalusia, southern Spain.

The Nao Victoria floating wind project is expected to cover an area of about 310 km2 and comprise 55 floating offshore wind turbines. IberBlue Wind has already submitted the Initial Project Document to Spain’s Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge (MITECO) for the project.

At the end of 2021, Spain only had 5 MW of installed offshore wind capacity (but 28 GW for onshore wind).  In December 2021, the Spanish government approved the Roadmap for the Development of Offshore Wind and Marine Energy Development, which targets 1 to 3 GW of floating offshore wind by 2030.
