ORE Catapult are the UK’s leading technology innovation and research centre for offshore renewable energy.
The company's strategy is to leverage their unique facilities and expertise to work in close partnership with the heavyweights of the offshore renewables industry – the OEMs and other large industrials, the developers and owner/operators – to improve existing and develop next generation renewable energy technology in the UK. In so doing, ORE enable and support the development of a vibrant indigenous supply chain, provide a clear route to market for innovative new companies and technologies, and direct and pull through applied research from the UK’s world-leading academic base.
To execute this model, ORE Catapult have organised their business into three primary delivery functions:
- Operation & Performance works with owner/operators and OEMs in the area of Operations and Maintenance, driving improvement in the existing wind farm fleet, developing the UK’s capabilities and opportunity in this critical area of service delivery and enabling future global exports.
- Testing & Validation applies expertise and assets to supporting technology development and demonstration with major industrial partners, technology innovators and the research community, delivering improvements to existing technology and driving the development of the next generation.
- Research & Innovation supports the development and commercialisation of future offshore renewable energy technologies through both applied research in collaboration with UK and international academia and via direct innovation to SMEs.
These are supported by the company's Professional Services and Marketing & Communications teams.
