Equinor Innovation Day

Equinor Innovation Day

30 January 2019
Venue: Port Training Services, Port of Blyth

NOF Energy in partnership with the ORE Catapult and Equinor is organising an innovation day which will look at next generation O&M concepts for the future offshore wind projects.

Equinor is keen to engage with the supply chain, research institutes and universities to identify new innovative solutions to maximise project value and start the journey towards "human free" O&M.

In order to increase the revenue stream within the O&M phase we have identified the following themes as being critical for further investigation and development.

  • Use of robotics and autonomous systems
  • Development and application of Digital Twins
  • 100% predictive maintenance through condition monitoring, predictive analytics and early detection of failure
  • Integration with the market to maximise the value of ever kWh
More detailed information on the above themes can be found by clicking here.
