Globally, offshore wind is fast becoming a leading source of renewable energy. It is critical that the technology powering offshore plants meets performance requirements and addresses the changing operational needs of these complex environments.
To address biofouling, Evoqua's Chloropac® electrochlorination system provides offshore wind farms with a reliable, long-term solution for corrosion prevention
High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Technology
High-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology is utilized is used to ensure operational efficiency for wind farms. HVDC transmission systems are housed on platforms in the sea, making them subject to ever-changing weather conditions and temperature extremes. Biofouling can also pose a significant problem for offshore wind power. The costs associated with operation, infrastructure, and the maintenance of offshore platforms are a concern. Additionally, there are also considerations for fish health, biosecurity, and damage to the aquaculture environment.
Why Chloropac® Systems?
- Patented, compact system for small footprints
- Hypochlorite is produced on-demand without the need for chemicals
- High internal velocities keep the cells active and surfaces clean eliminating costly acid washing
- Safe and uninterrupted HVDC transmission system ideal for unmanned offshore platforms.
