Offshore Wind Accelerator: Impact of Low Minimum Fault Levels at Grid Interface

Calling for entries from companies and consortia interested in undertaking a study for the OWA Electrical Systems Technical Working Group (TWG-E) that will investigate the opportunities and limitations associated with designing offshore wind farm connections in weak grid areas. 

The project aims to benefit the wider industry by providing guidelines on strategic and coordinated approaches to modelling, designing, and constructing offshore wind farms in weak grid areas where short circuit ratios are low. This will help developers evaluate the best holistic approach to dealing with low fault levels and improving offshore wind farm compatibility.

The deadline for clarification questions has passed. Responses to the clarification questions received are provided below.

The closing date to receive tender submissions is 14 June 13:00 BST.

All clarification questions and tender submissions should be sent electronically, by their respective deadlines, to, with in copy.
