Equinor has opened the vaults on operational data from the world’s first floating wind array, the Norwegian developer’s 30MW Hywind Scotland in the UK North Sea.

Working with Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, through its open-access Platform for Operational Data (POD) service, the company aims to “better engage industry, academia and the offshore wind supply chain in the UK and internationally, to foster collaboration and drive innovation” and drive down costs in the floating wind sector.
