By 2020, the government expects 15 per cent of the UK’s total energy needs to be met from renewable sources. This means that around 30 per cent of our electricity may come from renewables.
Offshore Transmission Owner (OFTO) projects are key infrastructure assets facilitating the development of offshore wind power generation. Ensuring that necessary infrastructure connecting these offshore windfarms to the onshore electricity grid is in place is equally critical to achieving Government goals.
CWind has experience delivering scopes of work for OFTOs including topside and subsea balance of plant, inspections and maintenance, offshore substation platforms, subsea export cables, onshore substation and provision of electrical equipment. As an example, CWind has an existing long-term O&M contracts in place at Westermost Rough.
