Focusing on offshore wind turbine powertrains, the new hub is aiming to improve the operation, reliability and performance of offshore wind turbines.
Sheffield University has been named as the academic partner for the hub, which is part of the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult (ORE) -- launched by the UK government in 2013 as part of a network of catapults in high growth industries. The University will contribute £1.7 million or more to the project over five years.
Industry will be able to access to the University of Sheffield's testing facilities in addition to ORE Catapult's 1, 3 and 15 MW powertrain test facilities at its National Renewable Energy Centre in Blyth.
