RWE, Smart Wires Sign MOU on Power Flow Control Tech Collaboration


RWE Offshore Wind and Smart Wires have have entered into a MOU to explore the potential use of SmartValve within RWE’s offshore wind development projects for long HVAC or HVDC cable circuits to support offshore generation connections. 

The investigation will focus on acceleration and minimization of the need for additional onshore and offshore grid infrastructure, says RWE.

“RWE is engaged in the development, design and construction of large and complex offshore wind farms and transmission infrastructure and the use of innovative technologies, such as advanced power flow control, has the potential to offer significant benefits,” says RWE’s Dirk Döring. “Therefore we are happy to join with Smart Wires to explore the use of their SmartValve technology in real life development applications.”
