BlueWind - The Next Generation of the Offshore Wind Grid
Meet the ONS Innovation Award Finalists at the Technical Sessions venue in the afternoon of 29 August from 14:00 to 16:00 CET.
Siemens Energy's Saverio Ventrelli (Global Head of Sales for Offshore Battery Energy Storage) will be introducing the decarbonized path forward for offshore wind grid applications.
BlueWind in Motion
The primary objective is to improve the efficiency of power generation, which in turn reduces the carbon footprint from the offshore production unit. The solution is based on the simple principle utilizing individual or multiple Offshore Floating Wind Units (OFWUs) equipped with battery energy storage and grid converters connecting to the oil and gas asset. When tied together, the OFWUs can be used to create offshore microgrids capable of supplying emissions-free power to offshore Oil and Gas facilities that rely on fossil-fuel based power generation from gas turbines or gas/diesel gensets.
Meet our experts live at ONS 2022
Join us at ONS 2022 to talk about the future of energy in the maritime and offshore world. We believe it’s possible to change the way we use oil and gas to allow for more sustainability and renewability. We partner with industry leaders to support them on this journey – no matter how far along they are.
Decarbonizing our energy systems is the biggest undertaking of our generation – and cutting down the greenhouse gas emissions in offshore production is part of it.
Siemens Energy has developed the BlueWind solution, which will substantially increase and improve the performance of the offshore floating wind turbines connected to oil and gas assets for decreasing the emissions by allowing switching off completely the gas turbines on the assets. The battery energy storage and the Power Management System (PMS) solve this issue by always ensuring grid stability, so that the full extent of power generating from the wind turbine(s) can be harnessed.
