Renexia has selected Technip Energies to carry out front-end engineering and design (FEED) for the Med Wind floating offshore wind project located in the Mediterranean Sea, 60 kilometers off the west coast of Sicily in Italy. The Med Wind project is located in the Strait of Sicily and will have an installed power capacity of 2.8 GW.
The scope of work includes 190 floating foundations for wind turbines and feeds for moorings and conceptual design for floating offshore sub-stations.
The floating foundation design will be based on Technip Energies’ in-house floater technology INO15, a three-column semi-submersible floater suitable for large series production.
Renexia, a subsidiary of the Toto Group, is an Italian company specializing in the development and management of renewable energy plants. In April 2022, Renexia completed the first marine wind farm in the Mediterranean in Taranto (Puglia).
“We are delighted to have been selected by Renexia for the largest floating offshore wind development in the Mediterranean Sea,” says Laure Mandro, SVP of Carbon Free Solutions at Technip Energies. “By leveraging our in-house technology, combined with our engineering and design capabilities, we are delighted to be supporting such a large development that will play an important role in achieving Italy’s ambitious renewable energy development plan and national decarbonisation targets Will perform.”
