November 26 (Renewables Now) - Danish clean-tech company Floating Power Plant A/S (FPP) has signed a deal that enables the deployment of the first full-scale hybrid floating wind and wave platform, with a capacity of more than 5 MW, at a test site off the coast of the Canary Islands.
The agreement is between a local unit of the engineering firm and the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands, also known as PLOCAN. It allows FPP to deploy the device in a designated area to the north of the test site and to connect it to the grid via a new subsea cable.
The project will rely on the local supply chain, according to the announcement.
“Reaching this agreement allows us to accelerate the development of the project and our technology, engaging key local stakeholders and value chain as well as progressing design and certification of the technical solution,” said Chris McConville, head of commercial and operations at FPP.
