In an effort to boost the UK’s floating offshore wind industry, ORE Catapult has established the Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence (FOW CoE) to accelerate the commercialisation of floating offshore wind in the UK, and more broadly. The Centre will accelerate the build-out of floating farms, create opportunities for the UK supply chain, and drive innovations in manufacturing, installation and O&M. 

As part of ORE Catapult's  work programme, the FOW CoE, in conjunction with Subsea UK, are running a series of webinars on critical subsea components in floating offshore wind – specifically dynamic cable systems and mooring and anchoring systems.

This webinar will look at specifically at mooring and anchoring technologies in FOW, and provide an introduction to the Mooring and Anchoring Systems project currently being delivered by the FOW CoE. This project is focused on FOW mooring and anchoring systems, and has been developed to both increase understanding of technical requirements for UK FOW projects in this area, and to understand the requirements and opportunities for the supply chain.


•An overview of mooring and anchoring technologies used in FOW;
•Overview of product development ongoing in industry;
•Update on the Mooring and Anchoring Systems project, including next steps for the programme;

Attend for insights into key components and design considerations for mooring and anchoring systems in FOW and an opportunity to provide industry feedback to support this work.
