Offshore charging


Initial technical considerations of integrating an offshore charging device into the grid of an offshore wind farm.

Various methods for connecting an offshore charging device to the infrastructure of an offshore wind farm can be envisioned:

  • 1A Charging a vessel (of all size, shapes and functions) directly from a wind turbine
  • 1B Charging a vessel (of all size, shapes and functions) from a charging buoy, connected directly to a wind turbine. This is the option being trialled in collaboration with Maersk Supply Service
  • 2A Charging a vessel (of all size, shapes and functions) directly from an offshore substation
  • 2B Charging a vessel (of all size, shapes and functions) from a charging buoy, connected directly to an offshore substation
  • 3A Charging a vessel (of all size, shapes and functions) directly from a separate transformer connected to the wind turbine, located either on the wind turbine or on a separate foundation
  • 4A Charging a vessel (of all size, shapes and functions) directly from a separate transformer connected to the substation, located either on the sub station or on a separate foundation
