The Cornwall Floating Offshore Wind Accelerator (CFA) is a part-ERDF funded project, which will develop tools, knowledge and collect data to accelerate the deployment of floating wind in the Celtic Sea. It will achieve this by undertaking the groundwork to help develop the project pipeline and prepare the regional supply chain. The project is led by Celtic Sea Power (formally Wave Hub Development Services) supported by University of Exeter, University of Plymouth, and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult.
A key part of the CFA work relates to innovation in Floating Offshore Wind low carbon design and manufacturability. Join us for our first industry engagement webinar where we will disseminate findings to date and unveil some future innovation challenges and opportunities.
The webinar will be the first of a series of events to engage the industry.
Emphasise the size and scope of Floating Offshore Wind in the Celtic Sea area
- Use a blades to anchors approach
- Bring industry up to a shared level of understanding regarding current state of the art in design and manufacturing of offshore wind turbines
- Explore the future innovation challenges and potentiality
Inspire the South West supply chain to become involved in Floating Offshore Wind:
- Identify areas for deeper dive workshops to be held in person
- Detail the £20million p.a. initiatives to support companies transition to floating offshore wind.
- Introduce the Celtic Sea Cluster
This webinar will be delivered in two key sessions on Monday 28th of March from 10am – 2pm. You can access the agenda here.
