Why #OWEU19 is the must-attend networking and learning event for offshore wind leaders

The offshore wind industry is forecast to grow from 18GW to 156GW by 2030. Floating wind will secure a commercially competitive 12GW of the overall growth; an equally impressive leap given a current capacity of less than 50MW. The opportunities to generate power from offshore wind turbines are abundant and wide-ranging; now is a crucial time to set, refine and update your company’s strategic plan, enabling your growth and security in the new global marketplace.

Bottom-fixed and floating wind are industries in different but equally exciting stages and we have developed an environment which provides each industry with a dedicated conference environment whilst simultaneously enabling the cross-sharing of ideas which are proving invaluable for offshore wind energy advancement.

This internationally focused business event assembles developers, operators, technology leaders, financiers, government agencies, OEMs, EPCIs and supply chain innovators to share insights, learn and conduct business.

Good spread of topics that were aligned with the market’s movements

Who Should Attend This Conference?

The Bottom-Fixed Wind Conference will focus on:

  • One day on market development, strategic direction, culture, skills, globalisation and supply chain.
  • One day on increasing operational efficiency and yield, new technologies for maintenance and inspection, lifetime extension and operational logistics

The Floating Wind Conference will focus on:

  • One day on commercialisation from a business perspective, securing finance, seeking favourable markets and regional support, lowing risk and developing the business case
  • One day on technical and technological factors, project updates, designing for commercial-scale platforms / cabling / moorings / O&M / logistics

The typical attendee job role involves a senior decision-making position which focuses specifically on one of the above areas thus giving a direct commercial benefit for your current activities, and simultaneously, being situated in a senior position would also benefit personally from an enhanced awareness of the challenges and opportunities which reside in other areas of the industry.
