This is excellent news for the sector and that we are keen to continue supporting our partners across industry developers and supply chain, regional and local government, academia and critical stakeholders, to engage with this exciting opportunity for the Celtic Sea. Though our collaborative working, research and skills development initiatives, and access to the University’s expertise and facilities we aim to help the development of floating offshore wind, to secure lasting sustainable benefits to society in the South West and Wales, and driving progress towards net zero and nature positive solutions for the UK.
The Celtic Sea development is a massive economic opportunity for Plymouth and the wider South West, alongside strengthening the UK’s leading global position in generating renewable energy from offshore wind. Our focus is on directly engaging with many of the companies we are already working with, as well as seeking new partners with whom we can apply our leading expertise and facilities for collaborative research and development projects. Together we will create innovative technological solutions for a cleaner, greener future.
