Blue Gem Wind – the floating wind joint venture between French oil giant TotalEnergies and Irish developer Simply Blue – has brought in certification body Bureau Veritas (BV) to provide project certification for the pioneering Erebus pilot in the Welsh Celtic Sea.

Under the deal, BV will give oversight to all phases of the 100MW deepwater project, from site condition assessment through to detailed design evaluation for all the components of the floating wind turbines, including the inter-array cables.
