Offshore Wind Sensors Technology Demonstration Opportunity

ORE Catapult is launching a competition aimed at SMEs who can provide sensor instrumentation to the blades, tower and substructure of the 7MW Levenmouth Demonstration Turbine to monitor its behaviour in real-world conditions. This is part of the Catapult’s recently announced ‘Clone of the Levenmouth Turbine’ (CLOWT) programme. The workshop will offer a unique opportunity for SMEs in the UK to learn more about our exceptional asset and how its capabilities can assist their journey towards commercialisation.

Who should attend?
We are looking for SMEs seeking to demonstrate, validate and calibrate novel sensor technologies for the offshore wind sector. This programme will utilise ORE Catapult’s 7MW Levenmouth turbine and technologies should be at TRL 5 or higher and should be non-intrusive to the operations of the turbine, or require any significant alteration of their device.

We are seeking sensor technologies that can instrument:
Blades  l  Drivetrains  l  Foundations
