UK Consortium Wins GBP 1.5 Million Funding For Offshore Charging Station

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on

This is the sub-heading.

A collaboration of UK green technology pioneers has been awarded GBP 1.5 million in funding to install what they say is “the world’s first offshore charging station within a UK wind farm”

These three paragraphs outline the project.

The funding was awarded as part of the Department for Transport and Innovate UK’s GBP 60 million Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition (CMDC).

Project leaders Oasis Marine have partnered with Turbo Power Systems, Verlume, and the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult to deliver the Offshore Charging Station solution.

This smart energy and charging infrastructure could enable fully electric maritime operations within offshore wind farms.


  1. The offshore charging station would enable many more wind farms to be served by electric or hybrid ships.
  2. Impressive reductions of carbon dioxide emissions are claimed in the article.
  3. The tests will be carried out in Aberdeen Bay.

Given, that it is intended that offshore oil and gas operations are being decarbonised, I can see no reason, why ships working in that industry, can use similar technologies.
