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.

Successful HVDC circuit breaker full-scale and high-power demonstration

A full-scale prototype of the ABB hybrid HVDC circuit breaker was successfully tested on the 27th of February 2020 in the independent KEMA Laboratories as part of the PROMOTioN HVDC technology demonstration programme.
