Cornwall FLOW Accelerator: Innovation in Low Carbon Design and Manufacturability.

Published 20 March 2023

The Cornwall Flow Accelerator work package 4 led by ORE Catapult details innovation in low carbon design and manufacturability that lays the groundwork for development of low carbon strategies, across design, manufacturing and operations & maintenance. Within this work package, the goal of this specific task 6 analysis, is for the electrical infrastructure of floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea to identify opportunities in the UK’s South West region.

This research will build on earlier considerations of how floating offshore wind can be integrated into the South Wales and South West UK transmission network, focusing on the introduction of the South West offshore substations, the Pembroke Demonstration Zone development and the substation, 4 GW expansion analysis, and technical bottleneck and promising technologies, i.e., floating offshore substation and subsea substation.
