Oasis Marine Power have completed the first stage of testing of their offshore charging station. The Oasis Power Buoy is an offshore mooring and charging station with a zero-emission power source fed from wind turbines.
Initially aimed at Wind Farm Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs) the Oasis Power Buoy provides the need for offshore charging of hybrid and all-electric vessels. Current diesel-powered maintenance vessels are responsible for the majority of C02 emissions from an operational wind farm. The Oasis Power Buoy makes zero-emission vessels viable for the industry. Sea trials were held in the Port of Cromarty Firth, Scotland during January 2022 in the first of a series of tests. The Oasis Power Buoy will now be undergoing further testing and optimisation, including sustained sea trials.
