Offshore wind power generation plays a critical role in the energy transition in Europe. High voltage direct current (HVDC) is the maturing way to transmit offshore energy to the land. Yet, it is prone to faults. So, what are fault-clearing strategies known today?
Apart from the installation and maintenance in harsh conditions, and components needing to withstand extreme weather, the biggest challenge with offshore wind is bringing the power to the shore and to the grid.
CDPQ, Cathay PE and Ørsted will jointly own the 605MW Greater Changhua 1 Offshore Wind Farm expected to be operational by 2022
Iberdrola’s majority stake will mark its entry into Poland with Sea Wind planning seven offshore wind projects totalling 7.3GW
Called ‘H2RES’, the facility will be powered by 2 turbines of 3.6 MW and has the capacity to produce 1,000 kg of green hydrogen every day
‘Oyster’ project will produce and transport green hydrogen from an electrolyser located in the sea; wins €5m funding from EU
