OWA Competition Looks to Make Offshore Wind Vessels Greener

The Carbon Trust's Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) plans to start a new industry competition next month with the aim of reducing emissions and fuel consumption in offshore wind vessels.

OWA is now calling on the industry to respond to a Request for Information (RFI) to inform the scope of the competition.

The RFI is the first stage in the competition that will have an estimated funding envelope of circa GBP 400,000. The results from the RFI will help gauge the current interest and development levels, and assist efforts to tailor the competition to best suit industry needs.

The initial focus will be on systems, subsystems, and technology that support the operation of Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV). However the industry’s view for larger vessels such as Service Operations Vessels in the future is also worth consideration, the Carbon Trust said.

The project is being led by BMT Defence and Security UK (BMT DAS) and Black & Veatch, commissioned by the Scottish Government and nine OWA industry partners – EnBW, EON, Iberdrola, Innogy, Ørsted, Shell, SSE, Equinor, and Vattenfall.
