ScotWind - maximising subsea technology to develop competitive floating wind
Magnora Offshore Wind is developing sustainable offshore wind energy for new generations and in cooperation with local communities. In January 2022 the company was allocated an option lease to develop a floating offshore wind farm of about 500MW off the coast of the North-western part of Scotland. The project is located in one of Scotland’s toughest environmental conditions with mean wind speeds of 11.4m/s and wave heights of 2.2m, which will drive the need for innovative solutions to make the project competitive.
Magnora Offshore Wind believes that floating offshore wind, through active development of three categories of technologies, will be competitive and by that be an important part of the solution to meet the climate targets. The presentation will focus on the following categories of technologies:
Energy storage technologies to even out energy production, making wind power more attractive for consumers and developers/producers
Combined energy production to increase efficiency of area allocation, related to combination of wind, hydrogen, tidal, wave
Technologies related to cost reduction by marinizing existing offshore solutions
