The Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult and the Net Zero Technology Centre (NZTC) have unveiled the INTOG Innovation Network, a new programme aimed at boosting the impact of commercial pilot-scale innovative floating wind projects through the INTOG (Innovation and Targeted Oil and Gas) leasing process. This initiative operates under the existing Energy Transition Alliance between ORE Catapult and NZTC.

Managed by Crown Estate Scotland, the INTOG leasing round serves the dual purpose of using floating offshore wind to directly reduce emissions from oil and gas production (TOG) and developing agreements for commercial pilot-scale innovation projects (IN) of less than 100MW.

The Innovation Network is solely focused on the innovation aspect of the INTOG leasing round, facilitating research, development, and engagement scopes for the five projects with exclusivity agreements.

Key priorities include:

  • Cultivating collaborative relationships among projects and identifying common innovation and technology challenges and opportunities.
  • Serving as a central point of contact for all five innovation projects to foster engagement and potential collaborations within the wider Floating Offshore Wind (FOW) industry.
  • Sharing insights to guide future projects.
  • Establishing a unified approach on topics with agreed synergies or benefits for parties.
  • Exploring opportunities to test and demonstrate technologies to increase technology readiness levels and de-risk technologies for deployment.
