The 2017 Offshore Wind Journal conference is a unique event designed to meet the needs of companies already working in the offshore wind supply chain and those who want to move into the fast-growing offshore wind sector.
The programme is tailored for companies already working in the sector and for those looking to enter it as part of their diversification strategy.
There is no denying that investment in the offshore wind sector is on the increase and this will ultimately result in growth in demand for specialist vessels and suppliers. Increased investment in the offshore wind industry as a whole is spurring demand for a range of vessel types, including turbine installation units, cable lay and accommodation solutions – particularly those with motion-compensated gangways for ‘walk-to-work’ access – and new-generation service operation vessels.
This intensive one-day conference, which takes place on the day preceding the world-leading Annual Offshore Support Journal conference, is a must-attend event for anyone already working in the industry and those with assets and expertise that could be used in it.
Having become an established part of the energy industry in Europe, offshore wind is being adopted in the US, Japan, India and many other countries, so don’t miss out on a unique opportunity to find out more about the size and scale of the opportunity and how to get into the market if you are not already in it.
The UK, Denmark, The Netherlands, Norway, France, Germany and Spain and other European countries have world-leading experience in the offshore oil and gas industry which can be harnessed in the offshore renewables market, which is set to spend £210 billion (U$369 billion) in the coming decade. Diversifying into renewables provides greater resilience for companies, and an opportunity to take an early lead in what will be a huge global industry. It’s an unmissable opportunity.
The event will show delegates how opportunities in this fast-growing market can be exploited by vessel owners, equipment and service providers and many other players in the offshore supply chain.
