Partners Tout Offshore Wind Transmission Concept (Int'l. Report)
TenneT, EnBW,Orsted
Date: 2019-09-09
TenneT, EnBW and Orsted are reporting an alliance to implement a new concept for connecting offshore wind farms and converter platforms in the German North Sea -- Orsted's Borkum Riffgrund West 1 and Borkum Riffgrund 2 projects in Cluster 1 as well as the Northern Energy OWP West and EnBW He Dreiht wind farms in Cluster 7.

Traditionally, projects feature a transformer platform which is connected to the converter platform for the transmission of electricity ashore. The new concept would avoid the construction of offshore substations and eliminate the need for costly export cable.

BLUE PILOT to Cut Offshore Wind Const. Costs (New Prod & Tech)
The Carbon Trust
Date: 2018-03-16
The Carbon Trust is reporting the launch of BLUE PILOT, a large-scale demonstration project aimed at reducing costs and underwater noise during construction of offshore wind farms as part of the Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA). The BLUE PILOT project will deploy The BLUE Hammer, a new type of pile driver developed by Fistuca BV., a Dutch technology company founded as a spin-off from Eindhoven University of Technology.

It is anticipated that the project will enable potential lifetime savings of €33 -- €40 million for a 720MW offshore wind farm.

OWA partners E.ON, EnBW, Orsted, Statoil and Vattenfall, alongside additional industry partners Fistuca, Van Oord, Shell and Sif are contributing €3.2 million in project funding, while the Netherlands Enterprise Agency has granted public subsidies of over €2.5 million.

In the BLUE PILOT project the hammer will be tested offshore at a location in Dutch waters. Sif will provide the monopile, and Van Oord will support the installation logistics. The other industry partners will provide funding and strategic advice into the project to ensure its relevance to future commercial projects.
