Italian steel maker Acciaierie d’Italia has signed a letter of intent with Falck Renewables and BlueFloat Energy for a strategic collaboration linked to the development of renewable energy projects. The trio also set up a technical table will focus on four potential development paths. Under this the Taranto-based company will supply steel and other materials for the construction of floating marine platforms (pictured) for the offshore wind farms developed by the joint partnership between Falck Renewables and BlueFloat Energy. In turn, these plants will offer Acciaierie d’Italia the supply of renewable energy and green hydrogen. Furthermore, Falck Renewables will support Acciaierie d’Italia in the construction of photovoltaic systems on land and buildings available to the company inside and outside the plant for the production of renewable electricity.
Then, the companies are willing to set up a consortium involving specialised companies, polytechnics and research centres to promote the greatest possible use of renewable energies for energy-intensive companies and for the technological development of an industrial supply chain for the production of components for marine wind technology in Apulia. The agreement is part of the strategic partnerships established by Acciaierie d’Italia with large companies of excellence to carry out the energy and environmental transition of the Taranto plant.
