Equinor and the Spanish energy company Naturgy entered into an agreement on the development and construction of floating offshore wind turbines off the coast of the Canary Islands.

Spanish authorities plan to develop up to 3 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind power by 2030. The first Spanish offshore wind auction will occur in the Canary Islands region in 2023.

“We want to contribute to the country’s plans for renewable energy in the long term and develop what could be the first commercial floating offshore wind farm,” Jens Økland, Equinor’s director of business development in renewable energy, said.

More than 90% of Spanish offshore wind areas are deep-water areas, which means that Spain is well-positioned to be at the forefront of the next wave of floating offshore wind in Europe, according to Økland.
