Blue Gem Wind proposal

Letter from the Marine Energy Hub in Pembrokeshire regarding Blue Gem Wind's floating offshore wind project 'Valorous'

Dear Sir or Madam,


On behalf of our client, Blue Gem Wind (BGW), we would like to introduce their proposed early‑commercial scale floating offshore wind project; Valorous.


Valorous is a proposed 300 MW floating offshore wind project in the Celtic Sea, approximately 47 km from the South West coast of Pembrokeshire. The key project elements include:

The attached Valorous Project Introduction Document provides further project details including an indicative timeline for development and how to engage with the project.


Valorous follows on from BGW’s 96 MW demonstration floating offshore wind project, Erebus and will form part of BGW’s “stepping-stone” approach to reaching commercial scale developments.


We are currently seeking an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Scoping Opinion from Natural Resources Wales (NRW). The Scoping Report accompanying the request will be available to view on the NRW public register and BGW’s website later this week.


Please do get in touch, if you have any queries, or would like further information.


Kind regards,
