PROMOTioN Testimonials

PROMOTioN SEEKS TO DEVELOP MESHED HVDC OFFSHORE GRIDS ON THE BASIS OF COST-EFFECTIVE AND RELIABLE TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

PROMOTioN is the link between technology research, validation (testing) and development of proposals/recommendation for meshed offshore grids.

PROMOTioN identifies technical requirements and investigate possible topologies for meshed HVAC/DC offshore grids.

PROMOTioN develops recommendations for a coherent EU and national regulatory framework regarding DC offshore grids.
