Equinor and Masdar have joined forces with ORE Catapult to share floating offshore wind data via the Platform for Operational Data (POD) data sharing platform. Operational data from the Hywind Scotland floating wind farm is now available to access on a free to use basis for supply chain businesses and academia through the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult’s POD service.
Under this agreement between Equinor, Masdar and ORE Catapult, subscribers can access a pre-defined set of full-scale measurements from one of Hywind Scotland’s five turbines. The data shared will include environmental data, motions of the floating wind turbine and loads in the mooring system. POD was enabled through funding from the Scottish Government.
