Offshore medium voltage for multi-megawatt solutions based on modules up to 4.5 MW
The development of medium voltage energy conversion systems for a wide range of output power, between 3 and 13.5 MW, providing the maximum efficiency, availability, scalability and adaptability according to the offshore wind power market needs. (OFFSHORE 4.5 MW MODULE)
New technologies “full-conversion” to increase energy density and power-cost ratio in offshore wind generation
To develop a power conversion system, fully liquid cooled, scalable and modular based on conversion units of 4 - 4.5 MW for Full Converter (FC) grid connections, minimizing the necessary investment cost for offshore wind power in low voltage (LV) up to 9 MW, ensuring the quality of the energy injected to the grid. (HIGH EFFICIENT FC)
During the research and design of the converter topologies, Ingeteam Power Technology S.A. will count with the invaluable collaboration of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
NTNU is among the international leaders in electrical power engineering research, notably in the areas of energy technologies, energy consumption (control, management, optimization) and energy planification.
In the period 2009-14, the EEA Grants support 86 programmes in 16 countries in Europe. The EEA Grants are available to the 13 EU member countries that joined the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA) in 2004, 2007 and 2013 as well as Greece, Spain and Portugal. The EEA Grants are jointly financed by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. The three countries contribute to the grant scheme according to their size and economic wealth. Of the €993.5 million set aside for the 2009-14 period, Norway represents around 94%, Iceland close to 5% and Liechtenstein just over 1%. The decision-making body of the EEA Grants is the Financial Mechanism Committee, which is composed of representatives of the Foreign Ministries of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
In the second round of EEA Grants 101 projects were approved. Within the category of Renewable Energies two projects of the company Ingeteam Power Technology SA were also approved by them.
