Greece: Deme and Faria to develop offshore wind parks

, SEE Energy News

Offshore contractor Deme and Greek renewable energy developer and independent power producer Faria Renewables have agreed to explore opportunities and co-develop offshore windfarms in Greece

The Greek government recently announced the draft National Offshore Wind Farms Development Programme which is overseen by the Hellenic Hydrocarbons and Energy Resources Management Company (HEREMA).

The programme defines eligible Organised Development Areas and estimates a capacity of 4.9 GW of offshore wind projects that can be developed in the mid-term (2030-2032), excluding the marine area between Evros-Samothraki which is designated for pilot offshore wind farm projects. The programme estimates that a capacity of around 12.4 GW could be developed in the longer term (after 2030-2032).

DEME and FARIA Renewables will join forces to assess Greece’s maritime area, identifying optimal sites for offshore wind development. They will conduct in-depth research and exploration, engaging with stakeholders and local communities. Simultaneously, they will support and create synergies with the domestic supply chain, ultimately developing successful and competitive projects.
