Agreement between Saipem, AGNES and QINT'X for development of a park wind power in the Adriatic

It will be made in two different sites in front of the Ravenna coasts

Saipem has signed a memorandum of understanding for the development of a wind farm in the Adriatic Sea off the coast of Ravenna AGNES, a renewable energy development company Adriatic Sea dealing with offshore and nearshore wind, solar floating at sea, energy storage systems, production hydrogen from renewable sources, and QINT'X, an Italian company specialising in renewable energy, in particular photovoltaics, wind, hydroelectric and e-mobility (electric)

The project involves the installation of about 56 turbines foundations at the bottom of the sea at two different sites, the first over eight nautical miles, the second over 12 miles. The total installed power will be approximately 450MW. In addition, as part of the same project, it is planned to use innovative technologies such as floating solar photovoltaic moss Maritime's proprietary technology, part of the Saipem's XSIGHT division dedicated to solution development to speed up the decarbonisation process of energy sector. Saipem has announced that in this regard the XSIGHT division has already begun the development of solutions renewable energy use and renewable energy hydrogen production "green" and the Agnes project will be the first project where these integrated solutions will take shape, giving the possibility of finding an alternative solution to the decomissioning of O&G platforms in the Adriatic Sea.

In addition, Saipem stressed that the project will be in an area with a high industrial vocation and will involve the local supply chain to support the project itself.

Mauro Piasere, chief operating officer of XSIGHT, Saipem's division is planning to start a similar project also in Sicily and Sardinia, through the use of floating foundations for wind power, Italian shipbuilding in this way."
