BlueFloat Energy is a nimble and fast-growing offshore wind developer shaping the global energy transformation by bringing scaled decarbonization solutions to new markets. Leveraging our team’s extensive knowledge and hands-on experience in both bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind project development and execution, we are at the forefront of the emerging global market for offshore wind.

Harnessing the world’s abundant offshore wind resources, we invest in new projects from early-stage development through to Final Investment Decision and beyond. With a vision of accelerating the global deployment of offshore wind as a key enabler for the energy transition and economic growth, BlueFloat Energy is developing offshore wind energy projects in multiple geographies, where we always operate following the highest ethical standards. Our Code of Ethics sets the corporate governance principles and values that guide our professionals when conducting their actions.

Our Track Record

We Are a Leading Player in Floating Offshore Wind

Our remarkable growth, including multiple project announcements across the globe, has positioned us as a market leader and expert player in the offshore wind industry. With a focus on floating wind technologies, our portfolio of both bottom-fixed and floating projects comprises over 23.6 GW of planned capacity in eight countries across the globe, and we are constantly looking to derisk these projects and expand into previously untapped markets.

We leverage our successful track record in floating offshore wind deployment and global industry knowledge to form strategic alliances with local partners advancing new opportunities to create ready-to-build, sustainable and bankable offshore wind projects that create the highest value for local communities.

In early 2022, BlueFloat Energy and its partners secured three seabed leases (for a total capacity of up to 3 GW) in the Scotwind leasing round, the world’s largest commercial round for floating offshore wind. Our Scotwind success is the result of a sound strategy based on three pillars: one of the strongest development teams in the floating wind market, reputed local partners that complement our skills with strong experience in local development, and a global perspective. Our three projects are a breaking new ground in putting large-scale floating wind technology on the map while furthering Scotland’s target to reach net zero emissions by 2045. In parallel, we are developing other floating wind projects in the Celtic Sea and Scotland to participate in future leasing rounds.

In France, our consortium with wpd and Vattenfall is prequalified for the 5th offshore wind tender off the coast of southern Brittany. With a targeted capacity of 250 MW, this project will be the first commercial-scale floating wind farm in France, representing a major step in achieving France’s target of deploying 10 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030. Reinforcing our commitment to enhancing offshore wind deployment in the French market, our consortium with Sumitomo Corporation and Akuo has prequalified for the 6th offshore wind tender off the French Mediterranean coast (AO6); the two projects, with 250MW of planned capacity each, represent a unique opportunity to achieve France’s recently announced 40GW target of offshore wind power by 2050.

Since the beginning of 2021, we have also announced a wide range of developments in Spain, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and Colombia, demonstrating our commitment to take a leading and proactive role in developing new markets for the global offshore wind industry. Starting in early-stage development, we prioritize stakeholder engagement to ensure the economic, environmental, and social sustainability of our projects.
