‘Metocean Needs Assessment Contracted for Canadian Offshore Wind’

Canada is set to develop windfarms offshore Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Labrador as part of the country’s clean energy and climate objectives. The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (IAAC) is overseeing regional assessments for offshore wind projects in these regions.

In line with this, Venterra Group Plc has been awarded a contract to assess metocean data collection requirements for the development of offshore windfarms off Canada’s Atlantic coast. Nova Scotia is aiming to offer seabed leases for up to 5 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030.

Venterra Geoscience will analyze existing metocean data, identify any gaps, and propose optimized data collection approaches. The goal is to outline all necessary metocean data to support offshore wind development in Atlantic Canada, focusing on regions like Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Labrador.

Lee Gooderham, director of Venterra Geoscience, highlighted that their work is a crucial step in Canada’s energy transition. The insights gained will support various initiatives, from field measurement campaigns to advanced numerical modeling, and research and development efforts to promote responsible and sustainable offshore wind deployment in the country.
