Sailing Into The Future: Partners Unveil Ambitious 540MW Italian Hybrid Floater Project!

🌊⚡ Sailing into the Future: SolarDuck, Green Arrow Capital, and New Developments Unveil Revolutionary Offshore Hybrid Project in Italy’s Gulf of Taranto! 🇮🇹💡

The stage is set for a groundbreaking leap in renewable energy as SolarDuck, Green Arrow Capital, and New Developments join forces to develop a pioneering offshore floating photovoltaic (OFPV) project coupled with a vast floating offshore wind farm. This dynamic partnership is poised to revolutionize Italy’s energy landscape with a combined capacity of 540MW.

Named the Corigliano offshore hybrid wind-solar farm, this visionary project will grace the waters of the gulf of Taranto off the coast of Corigliano-Rossano in Calabria. Anchored by 28 floating turbines, this innovative site will harness the abundant energy potential of both wind and solar resources.

At the heart of the project lies SolarDuck’s innovative elevated platform technology, enabling the deployment of PV panels even in significant wave heights while ensuring a safe working environment for maintenance and minimizing environmental impact. This synergy between wind and solar energy resources not only maximizes energy generation but also underscores the project’s commitment to sustainability.

Currently navigating the permitting process, the Corigliano project is projected to achieve Commercial Operation Date (COD) in 2028. SolarDuck’s Chief Executive, Koen Burgers, expressed his optimism, stating, “With the current momentum, we believe this is a unique opportunity for the offshore renewable energy industry to help shape a favorable regulatory framework and facilitate the scaling of OFPV.”

Daniele Camponeschi, Founder and Chief Information Officer of Green Arrow Capital Group, emphasized the project’s significance, saying, “As pioneers of renewables in Italy, we continually strive to lead the way, exemplified by our innovative offshore projects. These cutting-edge infrastructures not only generate green energy contributing to sustainable energy transition and independence but also demonstrate their complementarity to onshore installations, preserving precious land resources.”

With its potential to serve as a catalyst for OFPV not only in Italy but across the Mediterranean region, the Corigliano project stands as a testament to the power of collaboration and innovation in driving the transition towards a more sustainable future. 🌞🌬️ #RenewableEnergy #SolarPower #WindEnergy #OffshoreWind #Innovation #Sustainability #GreenTech #ItalyRenewables 🚀🌊
