Scibreak has been accepted as a partner in the PROMOTioN project, which is part of the EU-financed Horizon 2020 program. The project seeks to develop meshed HVDC offshore grids on the basis of cost-effective and reliable technological innovation. It gathers more than 30 partners among manufacturers, TSOs, consultants and academia and has a budget of more than 50 MEUR.
Scibreak will contribute in several ways to the project.
The project ‘PROgress on Meshed HVDC Offshore Transmission Networks’ applied in 2015 for funding under the EU Horizon 2020 (H2020) programme call ‘Competitive Low-Carbon Energy’ 5 (LCE 5). Within the framework of modernisation of the European electricity grid, this call focused on advancing innovation and technologies relevant to the deployment of meshed off-shore HVDC grids.
