BaseLoad Operation

The EnviroShip will compliment the offshore wind farm by significantly increasing its caseload power capability, and reducing its intermittency.   

The EnviroShip can produce electricity at the same time whilst the wind is blowing as there is sufficient capacity in the offshore transmission network. Offshore transmission infrastructure often has huge reduncany built in and there are normally two additional cables installed at extra expense and which are under-utilised. 

The power is sent via subsea cable to the offshore substation which transforms the electricity from 33,000 volts up to 132,000 volts and transmits it back to shore for entry into the national grid network.
