CORK-BASED offshore wind energy developer Simply Blue has received a €15m investment from UK-listed Octopus Renewables Infrastructure, giving it a 24pc stake in the Irish group.

“Floating offshore wind is a particularly exciting renewable energy sector which is expected to undergo rapid growth over the years to come and is a key part of government decarbonisation plans in a number of European countries,” said Octopus Renewables investment director Chris Gaydon.

Floating wind foundations are typically used in deep water where fixed foundations are not economically feasible, according to Simply Blue.

Lobby group WindEurope reckons that there could be as much as 150GW of offshore floating wind farms by 2050.
