Equinor and ORE Catapult collaborate on Hywind Scotland operational data

Equinor and Masdar have joined forces with ORE Catapult to share floating offshore wind data via the POD data sharing platform.

Operational data from the world’s first floating offshore wind farm, Hywind Scotland, is now available to access on a free to use basis for supply chain businesses and academia through the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult’s Platform for Operational Data (POD) service. 

The POD service is designed to offer comprehensive data sets from offshore wind demonstrator sites across the UK to improve our understanding of how offshore wind farms operate in real-world conditions and support innovative research, projects and product development.

Under this agreement between Equinor, Masdar and ORE Catapult, subscribers can access a pre-defined set of full-scale measurements from one of Hywind Scotland’s five turbines.

By enabling access to this information, the three organisations aim to better engage industry, academia and the offshore wind supply chain in the UK and internationally, to foster collaboration and drive innovation in floating offshore wind.

The shared long-term goal is to reduce the cost of floating offshore wind, making the technology a cost competitive industrial solution.
