A technology innovation and research centre has announced a £920,000 programme to advance offshore wind research in Scotland, based around its Levenmouth Demonstration Turbine. The Scottish Government is providing £460,000 of funding, which is being matched by ORE Catapult.

The new programme will increase access for businesses and enable them to take advantage of the Catapult’s expertise and its industry and academic partnerships.  It will also fund the establishment of a lidar (laser-based radar) test facility, and facilitate the creation of a ‘virtual windfarm’. The virtual windfarm will be created using operational data from the Levenmouth Turbine, delivering a platform for the dissemination of research, data and findings to Scotland’s industry and academic research communities. This will help to increase understanding of how offshore wind farms work, and how to make them more efficient.
