The event – taking place in Manchester in June – brings together 4000 wind professionals from over 40 countries across two days.

MJR Power and Automation’s experienced Electrical Engineer, Mohammed Latif will present the innovation and will be joining other high-profile experts to discuss the company’s Offshore Wind On-Turbine Electrical Vessel Charging System at one of the events afternoon slots held in the energy transition zone sponsored by ScottishPower Renewables.

Set to be the world’s first offshore wind vessel charging system demonstrated in the field with energy delivered direct from the wind turbine, the flagship project secured funding as part of the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition, funded by the Department for Transport and delivered in partnership with Innovate UK.

Most recently, the company has announced construction and in-house testing have now been successfully completed on the offshore charging system that is set to revolutionise the offshore wind sector.

The charge points will enable all electric crew transfer vessels and other offshore support vessels to connect in the field to a 100 percent green energy source generated directly by the offshore wind turbines for the efficient, safe and reliable transfer of power.

This innovation will break down the existing range barriers and increase the uptake by vessel owners and operators with transition to fully electric and green propulsion systems, for retrofit and new build vessels. In combination with other field proven technologies, the charging system will be an important part for government and offshore wind owners and operators, to achieve their net zero maritime operations targets, and switch away from fossil fuels. The ability to charge when in the field, will significantly accelerate adoption of current emission free propulsion systems which will be a major asset for the decarbonisation of the global maritime sector.

“I am delighted MJR has been chosen to speak at this year’s highly acclaimed Global Offshore Wind event and present our latest innovation to leading industry peers” said Mohammed Latif, Electrical Engineer at MJR Power and Automation. “Our system will be absolutely crucial in helping governments to deliver on their net zero carbon targets and I am looking forwarding to demonstrating how it works and the benefits it offers.”

As part of the project, MJR Power and Automation led a consortium of partners – Ore Catapult; Xceco; Artemis Technologies and Tidal Transit – who all provided expertise in their given field.
