EGI is your agile partner to develop and optimize offshore power grids

In this fast-changing world, offshore wind is quickly becoming one of the most convenient ways to add renewable energy sources to the electricity grid.

Due to the installation costs tumbling at record rates, system Operators have to quickly adapt by building more and more offshore electricity grid infrastructure. 

EGI can help you to build a cost-efficient offshore grid, therefore, fulfilling a milestone in the development of a secure, interconnected power system for your country, able to integrate increasing amounts of renewable energy.

Learning from our past and present to support your future

If you want to effectively develop your offshore project while keeping a reliable and secure electricity transmission business, your organization must build its capabilities in a wide range of technical and critical fields. EGI can help you taking short-cuts and side-steps that avoid failure in the following fields of expertise:

  • We are designing solutions that aim at optimizing costs and reliability of overall offshore windfarm/clusters
  • We are optimizing construction costs leveraging world-class grid assets procurement and contract management policy
  • We are de-risking projects thanks to our experienced & trusted engineering and project management teams
  • We are accelerating and facilitating project developments thanks to deep knowledge of regulations, grid code requirements and fellow TSOs
  • We are a reliable co-investor thanks to our regulated activities in domestic countries
  • We operate and maintain our own offshore grids and can support you to do just that for yours

Optimized grid connection design

  • One way of de-risking the power-to-shore milestone: By creating alternative options for grid connection, FID can be accelerated or onshore grid constraints circumnavigated.
  • An improved design of a meshed grid dampens peaks and reduces the biggest fault risk, which is beneficial for TSO and developer.
  • An optimised grid design reduces cost by improving the utilisation of cable and electrical equipment and avoiding “overspecification”.

We are your partner with a holistic view for the future
