The Floating Wind Joint Industry Project (Floating Wind JIP) aims to accelerate and support the development of commercial-scale floating wind farms. The Floating Wind JIP is a collaboration between various industry partners with support from the Scottish Government.

The competition was launched to address the lack of availability of high voltage dynamic export cables for the transmission of power from wind farms to shore, which has been identified by industry as a potential bottleneck for the commercial deployment of floating wind technology.

The competition winners are:

Drawing on the expertise of existing offshore wind cable suppliers, as well as tapping into the oil and gas supply chain, the competition funding will support the design, initial testing and development of dynamic cables ranging from 130kV to 250kV to enable the efficient transmission of power from floating wind turbines to shore.

Rory Shanahan, Manager - Offshore Wind, the Carbon Trust, said: “We are delighted with the response we got from the industry and we are looking forward to working with the five competition winners. The lack of dynamic export cables has been identified as a hurdle that needs to be overcome by industry to ensure the commercialisation of floating wind farms, and we are excited to begin work to ensure that this technology is ready in time for commercial floating wind projects."
