ORE Catapult launches Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence

The Offshore Renweable Energy (ORE) Catapult has launched a new multi-million pound Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence to spearhead the development of next-generation offshore wind technologies.

The overarching aim is to develop an internationally recognised centre of excellence that will work to speed up the commercialisation of floating offshore wind by reducing costs, accelerating the construction of floating farms, creating opportunities for the UK supply chain and drive innovations in manufacturing, installation and O&M.

The Centre of Excellence is essential in meeting the Sector Deal commitment to produce 30GW of offshore wind by 2030 and the UK's commitment to achieve net-zero by 2050.

ORE Catapult's Macroeconomic Benefits report and the joint Renewable UK and Scottish Renewables Floating Wind - The UK Industry Ambition identify that Scotland, South West England and Wales are key areas in harnessing floating wind and could benefit from the development of the technology, creating 17,000 jobs and generating 33.6bn for UK economy by 2050.
