RWE is partnering with Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult to study the potential for Scottish businesses to produce commercial scale concrete foundations for floating wind projects.
The study will be carried out by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult’s Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence to understand the scale of this potential and how it might be unlocked. Fully funded by RWE and delivered as a discretionary project within the Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence, a summary of the work will be published upon completion of the research in mid-2021. RWE has been involved in three floating wind demonstration projects in Norway, Spain and the US, two of which use concrete foundations that could also be suitable for ScotWind sites.
