These services leverage our staff’s unrivalled experience of offshore transmission, HVDC and other advanced transmission technologies. [Find out more]. This experience includes leading the development of a 1000MW HVDC link, co-founding an offshore transmission owner (“OFTO”), and developing advanced HVDC converter technologies.
We pride ourselves on our focus on innovative new solutions [Find out more]. For instance we are leading an industry project to improve submarine cable ratings, and we are involved in a major project to assess how inverter control can be improved to allow more renewables and HVDC to be connected to the British grid.
We recognise the need for lower costs in offshore transmission [Find out more], and we are helping to achieve this by chairing the Offshore Wind Programme Board Grid Group – a joint initiative between the offshore wind industry and the British government that aims to reduce offshore wind prices while boosting the benefits of offshore wind for Britain.
Our base in Kenilworth is in the heart of Britain’s transmission industry, just minutes away from Britain’s largest transmission company and half an hour’s drive from the Energy Systems Catapult.
