Development of Floating Substations (FOW Subgroup Webinar)

22 October 2020
Venue: Webinar

The DeepWind Floating Offshore Wind Subgroup’s next webinar will be on the subject of developing Floating Substations and will be delivered by members Linxon and Atkins along with input from Hitachi ABB.

This webinar will present the floating substation concept under development jointly by Linxon, Atkins and Hitachi-ABB.
The aim of the webinar will be to present:

a)        the project-specific conditions that determine the techno-economic viability of a floating substation to interconnect an offshore wind farm. These conditions include water depth, metocean environment, power levels as well as distance from shore.
b)      the developed floating substation design by describing its main features from the interconnection, equipment payload and naval perspective.
c)       the introduction of innovative strategies for construction, operation and maintenance that are specific to the proposed solution.
