UK utility National Grid has chosen certification physique DNV GL as a lead companion within the Offshore Wind Coordination undertaking in Great Britain.
The undertaking will analyse a coordinated method for offshore grid growth and form the longer term nationwide technique of Great Britain’s offshore grid.
National Grid and DNV GL will advise the UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy’s Offshore transmission community evaluate, which additionally entails different events, comparable to UK regulator OFGEM.
The undertaking will evaluate and suggest methods to enhance how offshore wind farms are related to the onshore transmission community.

DNV GL has been commissioned to evaluate the viability of a coordinated method together with:
- Assess know-how availability (HVDC gear)
- Analyse technical and regulatory boundaries and options
- Study implications on energy system safety and stability
- Develop offshore and onshore grid designs
- Conduct societal Cost-Benefit Analysis of the offshore grid
Combining its complete expertise of power markets, energy system evaluation and transmission & distribution know-how, DNV GL will assess essentially the most helpful offshore community growth approaches and the outcomes they ship for power customers (customers) and coastal communities.
The goal is to make sure optimum utilisation of infrastructure, increased integration of offshore wind power, discount of carbon emissions and client payments, and provision of operational advantages to the onshore grid.
The growth comes after the UK has emerged as a world chief in offshore wind power because the know-how’s inception.
To date, the UK has an put in capability over 10GW of offshore wind and can quickly be residence to the world’s largest wind farm, Dogger Bank.
Offshore wind continues to be a key electrical energy supply for the UK authorities and helps its dedication for the nation to be net-zero by 2050. Delivering a future-proof grid that ensures all generators, substations and cables are related to the grid safely and successfully is of paramount significance to assembly that aim.
National Grid ESO head of technique and regulation, Craig Dyke, stated: “This is a crucial undertaking to be engaged on with DNV GL, inspecting completely different technological and engineering options for offshore grid growth and relative completely different prices and advantages. We are dedicated to serving to facilitate offshore wind’s contribution to the UK’s net-zero goal, in addition to making certain worth for cash for customers and decreasing the environmental and social influence of onshore connections to native communities.”

Prajeev Rasiah, government vice chairman North Europe, Middle East & Africa at DNV GL – Energy stated: “We are honoured to guide this undertaking notably because the UK Government has dedicated to putting in 40GW of offshore capability by 2030. This signifies that offshore transmission and distribution grids have to be able to supporting the rising provide of fresh electrical energy from offshore wind tasks and assist the UK meet its decarbonization plans. The Offshore Coordination Project is an important enterprise which can create many classes learnt and should assist to develop an industry-standard method to learn not simply the UK but in addition different nations.”
