A unique opportunity for UK companies to supply the Chinese offshore wind market

As part of the recent major collaboration agreement between ORE Catapult and Chinese clean energy company Tus, there is now a huge opportunity for UK companies to be directly involved in technology projects for the Chinese offshore wind market. This will include opportunities for UK companies to provide innovative technologies for a 500MW offshore wind demonstrator project (in planning) in the Shandong Province.

The first technologies identified to collaborate on are as follows:

  • Array Cables and Foundation Installation / Monitoring
  • Operations, Maintenance and Service
  • Turbine Optimisation and Reliability
