ORE Catapult in discussions to acquire Samsung’s next generation 7MW demonstration offshore wind turbine at Methil, Fife

The Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult has announced that it is in discussions with Samsung Heavy Industries about potentially acquiring the 7MW offshore wind turbine at Methil for research purposes.

Upon completion of the agreement, the Methil turbine would become the world’s most advanced, open access, offshore wind turbine dedicated to research. It would provide UK industry and academia with unrivalled opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of operations and maintenance of offshore wind turbines and thus drive down the cost of delivering clean energy from offshore wind.

It would enable considerable training and development of skills vital for the offshore wind industry.

The discussions are on-going and the Catapult will shortly be seeking quotations through the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) for Operations & Maintenance support for the turbine in the event of completion of the transfer of ownership.
