The two organisations have signed a Collaboration Agreement with the aim of developing R&D projects to tackle some of the key technology challenges facing the sector. They will collaborate on EU frameworks and share testing and demonstration experience in offshore wind energy technologies, with a view to improving existing testing capabilities and facilitating access to each other’s testing infrastructure.
They will also exchange knowledge on HVDC technologies, rain erosion test methodologies, erosion coating technologies and measurement techniques. Representatives from both organisations will sit on each other’s respective advisory groups, helping to identify and prioritise critical areas where innovative approaches and technological development can accelerate cost reduction in the delivery of offshore renewable energy.
