Agenda Day 3

8:30 am - 9:00 am Welcome Coffee & Tea / Registration for Workshop B

9:00 am - 11:00 am Workshop B HVDC Sensibility: Large Scale Offshore Grid Connections

High voltage DC (HVDC) transmission becomes more attractive and practical to integrate large-scale offshore wind farms into the power grid.
  • HVDC sensibility in large scale offshore grid connections
  • How to handle wind gusts
  • How to handle grid power overshoot
Toon Houwen, BD Manager, CG Holdings Belgium NV, Belgium

11:00 am - 11:15 am Refreshment break/ Registration for Workshop C

11:15 am - 1:15 pm Workshop C Standardization Offshore Platforms OTM-VSC

DC technology is used for connecting offshore wind farms into electric transmission and distribution networks. How grid access via DC technologies can improve transmission reliability and save costs will be presented in this workshop.
  • Grid access via DC technology to improve transmission reliability and save cost
  • Compact and flexible layouts
  • Potential and degree of standardization
Wolfgang Dallinger, Head of Engineering Grid Connection, Siemens AG

1:15 pm - 2:15 pm Networking luncheon/ Registration for Workshop D

2:15 pm - 4:15 pm Workshop D Floating Offshore Wind Power Substations

Floating offshore wind (FOW) is a fast maturing technology with the potential to cement Europe's leadership in Renewables globally. The workshop will present its potential, feasability and costs for substations.
  • Cost and risk reduction potentials in the transition from bottom fixed to floating substations
  • Proven elements in a new combination to meet the needs of a growing market
  • Feasability and costing
Jan Wigaard, Principal Engineer Structural and Naval Architecture, Aibel AS, Norway

4:15 pm - 4:45 pm End of workshop day
