    Norway : Equinor and Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult announce strategic partnership

    November 17, 2022 - TendersInfo - News


      Equinor and the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult have announced a collaboration agreement that will tackle some of the biggest challenges facing the offshore renewables sector.

      The UK-wide partnership brings together Equinor, the operator of Dogger Bank which is set to be the worlds largest offshore wind farm on completion, with the UKs leading R&D experts in offshore wind energy at ORE Catapult, building on previous collaborations between both organisations.

      ORE Catapult and Equinor have a joint aim to collectively invest in technology readiness for offshore wind, and together they will focus on developing skills in the industry, on operations and maintenance initiatives, on improving turbine reliability/performance and on energy integration.

      Tony Quinn, ORE Catapults Technology Development Director, said: With a long history of collaboration between ORE Catapult and Equinor, this agreement was a logical next step that we are very excited to see come to fruition. Supporting Equinor in developing solutions to key challenges for the sector, across skills, O&M and energy integration in particular, will generate exciting outcomes for the industry moving forward.

      ORE Catapult and Equinor are aligned on key areas such as supporting the UK Offshore Wind Sector Deal, accelerating innovation and developing opportunities in clusters across the UK. Broader collaboration in the future could include hydrogen electrolysis and battery storage.

      Trine Borum Bojsen, SVP North Sea Renewables at Equinor said: We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with ORE Catapult, building on our relationship developed in North East England and around our floating wind project, Hywind Scotland, where we have previously collaborated to share data. We look forward to working together on initiatives across the UK that will help to develop a more competitive UK supply chain, deliver new innovations and support the talent of tomorrow entering the industry.

      Key components in the Dogger Bank supply chain have undergone rigorous testing and certification at ORE Catapults world leading testing facility in Blyth as part of the delivery of the project. Equinor has also been a delivery partner on ORE Catapults Technology Innovation and Green Growth in Offshore Renewables (TIGGOR) programme since its inception and currently supports the Catapults UK wide Launch Academy programme.
