Ideol, Elicio Bid for ScotWind Floater

November 1, 2019

Floating offshore wind technology company Ideol and offshore wind farm developer and operator Elicio have joined forces to co-develop floating wind projects in Scottish waters and are preparing to bid for a site to develop at the upcoming ScotWind leasing round.

Crown Estate Scotland will launch the deep-water round following the publication of Marine Scotland’s draft Sectoral Marine Plan in Autumn.

 Emile Dumont, Boardmember of Elicio NV, said: "Wind energy has significant growth potential and is at the heart of Elicio’s strategy to contribute towards a cleaner and cost-effective energy powered world. Further to Elicio’s unique expertise and experience in offshore wind energy, we are committed, with our partner Ideol, to making this tender a milestone in the Scottish offshore wind sector."

“Combining the track-record of Ideol in floating wind and the experience of Elicio in offshore wind offers a unique value proposition maximising certainty of a successful project development, based on the effective creation of a Scottish supply chain, a competitive LCOE and a proven floating technology” said Paul de la Guérivière, CEO of Ideol.

With this partnership, Ideol confirms its inhouse capabilities and ambitions to take on floating wind projects from the early-stage development phase, said a press release.
