Offshore wind is becoming a leading source of renewable energy and it is critical that High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission system meet performance requirements and operational needs in a complex environment.
HVDC transmission systems are housed on unmanned platforms making them subject to ever changing weather conditions and temperature extremes. Marine biofouling and galvanic corrosion can also pose a significant problem along with the cost associated with operation, infrastructure, and maintenance. Additionally, there are also considerations for fish health, biosecurity, and damage to the aquaculture environment. The answer is Evoqua’s Chloropac® electrochlorination system.
Evoqua's Chloropac® electrochlorination system provides offshore wind farms with a reliable, long-term solution for marine biofouling and corrosion.
Why Chloropac® Systems for Offshore HVDC Applications?
Evoqua's Chloropac® electrochlorination systems provide offshore wind farms with an effective solution to address marine biofouling and corrosion. Benefits of adding a Chloropac® system to your renewable energy generation process include:
- Patented small footprint design
- Hypochlorite is produced on-demand without the need for chemicals
- High internal velocities keep the cells active and surfaces clean eliminating costly acid washing
- Provides a safe, uninterrupted HVDC transmission system for unmanned offshore platforms.
