ENTSO-E releases its Offshore Transmission Technology Report

This ENTSO-E report entitled "Offshore Transmission Technology Report" provides an overview of offshore electricity transmission technologies. The focus of the report concerns the use of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) systems in particular and focuses also on the development of Voltage Source Converter (VSC) technology. The report outlines the current state of the main technology groups required for offshore HVDC transmission as well as giving examples of offshore projects (both current and future). Finally some indications of likely unit costs for HV assets are given.

This report was prepared for the North Seas Countries’ Offshore Grid Initiative (NSCOGI) by ENTSO-E’s Regional Group North Sea (RG NS). Members of RG NS including Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Rep of Ireland and the UK contributed to this report along with contributions from equipment suppliers and manufacturers through the working group of Georg Wilhelm Adamowitsch.
