The most apparent application short to medium term is onshore electricity market. Longer term the electrification of oil & gas platforms will be targeted by SWAY.
Electrification of oil & gas platforms
The SWAY® system is suitable for electrification of oil & gas platforms at an electricity production costs, including capital costs, well below the operational costs alone for the gas and diesel turbines used today in the offshore industry. Large cost and emission savings can be achieved.
Export to onshore electricity market
SWAY's technology can be used for power export to the onshore electricity market. The transport of the power will be via sea cables. Typically, the offshore wind parks could be located offshore from cities and industry hubs, i.e. in the proximity of where the power is needed.
