Hosted by Subsea UK, presentations from ORE Catapult explore the opportunities in dynamic cables and mooring systems.

Angeliki Spyroudi, Senior Strategy Analyst

Angeliki is Senior Strategy Analyst in the Analysis & Insights team responsible for delivering ORE Catapult’s market intelligence reports, investigating and analysing current industry trends giving strategic insights of the offshore renewable energy market. She conducts financial modelling on a variety of renewable energy projects to identify cost reduction potential and explores the commercial viability of innovative technologies to support SMEs. She has worked on a number of floating wind projects collaborating with key industry stakeholders performing market research and cost modelling analysis. The most recent analysis focused on the cost comparison of tow to shore and fix on-site maintenance strategies for major repairs in floating wind as part of the Offshore Wind Innovation Hub (OWIH).
The presentation will cover ORE Catapult’s view of the floating wind market, including deployment targets and capacity growth. It will provide insight into the role floating wind will play in the upcoming UK leasing rounds, referring to specific project opportunities while highlighting the importance of a strong UK supply chain to support the growing market.
Ellen Jump, Project Engineer

Ellen Jump is a Project Engineer within the ORE Catapult’s Operational Performance team, focused on floating offshore wind projects. She has a background in mechanical engineering and has been with ORE Catapult since 2018 – first working across a range of tidal and wind energy projects before joining the floating wind team in autumn 2020. Ellen is the ORE Catapult technical lead for a number of the Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence projects, including those in mooring and anchoring systems, and dynamic cabling. She has also recently worked on Energy Transition Alliance projects with OGTC on floating offshore wind for oil and gas decarbonisation and floating offshore wind supply chain.
This presentation will give a high level overview of current ORE Catapult programmes related to floating wind and the supply chain, particularly Fit 4 Offshore Renewables and the Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence (FOW CoE). It will then outline two particular ongoing CoE projects relating to mooring and anchoring systems and dynamic cables. These projects aim to both increase technical understanding, and assess the future demand on the supply chain and the supply chain capability and capacity to meet demand.”
