Floating Offshore Wind and Fishing Interaction Roadmap

The Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence (FOW CoE) launched the Floating Offshore Wind and Fishing Interaction Roadmap project, or FOW-Fishing Interaction project, in November 2020.

The aim was to facilitate a stakeholder engagement process that would identify potential interactions between the Scottish fishing sector and future commercial FOW farms, and to assess the associated challenges and potential opportunities. The project’s principal objective was to develop a roadmap outlining a portfolio of activities which, if carried out in a timely manner, could deliver benefits that coincide with commercial-scale FOW deployment over the course of the next decade, and would support constructive engagement between the two sectors both throughout this period and beyond.

A Decade of the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult

The last 10 years have seen a remarkable transformation in the offshore renewable energy sector, and ORE Catapult has been at the very heart of that. In that time, we’ve seen the cost of offshore wind slashed by about 70% and over 1000 offshore wind turbines installed in UK waters. New innovative technologies, such as floating offshore wind and tidal stream energy have become major players in the race towards net zero and offshore renewable energy has become a key cornerstone of the UK’s energy mix.
