Over the last 12 months, CWind and ORE Catapult have established a strong relationship, leveraging their respective strengths and capabilities, and have planned multiple projects for 2019, including the exploration of an engineered corrosion protection solution, and an in-field communication solution.

Furthermore, CWind is delighted to join the Offshore Wind Innovation Hub’s (OWIH) Technical Advisory Group.
