Cerulean Winds has revealed plans to build the North Sea Renewables Grid (NSRG), an offshore integrated green power and transmission system, powered by floating wind, that oil and gas platforms will plug into for clean power.
Cerulean and partner Frontier Power International will develop three 333km2 sites of hundreds of floating turbines, producing multiple GW of electricity, after being offered seabed leases in the recent Crown Estate Scotland INTOG round. The scale and location close together in the Central North Sea will enable a new basin-wide offshore transmission system to be constructed which platforms can access. Consortium partners include NOV, Siemens Gamesa, Siemens Energy, Deme and Worley. Phase 1 of the NSRG will focus on oil and gas operators to support their brownfield modifications with future phases exporting green power to the grids in southern UK and Europe.
