Open to: All participants with a valid exhibition or conference pass for Tuesday
Innovative solutions for an efficient wind farm supply chain
What could improve the efficiency of the offshore wind farm supply chain and make it more cost competitive with traditional forms of energy?
This event will provide examples of innovative technologies with this aim such as new vessel designs and novel substructure concepts. Primary vessel types for both windfarm installation and O&M operations; a gravity-based offshore platform; novel foundation designs and offshore trials will be described.
Speakers will then illustrate how these state-of-the-art technologies are expected to reduce costs across the offshore wind energy lifecycle and supply chain and how they are directly applicable and beneficial to the industry in the short to medium term.
Delegates’ feedback will be sought in the course of the session and considered for integration into future work.
