Red Rock Power Limited is delighted to be partnering with ORE Catapult on its offshore wind ‘Launch Academy’. The industry-backed accelerator programme will support the development of new innovative technology and SME growth in the sector, while also creating opportunities to improve wind farm efficiency and performance. The nine-month initiative will see eight promising companies be given invaluable support from a range of partners before pitching their innovative ideas, with the aim of securing investment and routes to market for their products.

Red Rock Power CEO, Guy Madgwick, said: “Innovation is vital in order to meet the ambitious growth targets set out by industry in the Offshore Wind Sector Deal. Incorporating innovative technologies, products and services into the day to day running of offshore wind farms will improve efficiency and performance, and help to drive down costs as a result, but more importantly allow new opportunities to safeguard the health and safety of our offshore personnel.

“The Launch Academy will play a key role in helping us to identify SMEs and innovators we can work with and ensure they are supply chain ready to support our future projects.”
