Wind Risk Management And Mitigation
Formerly entitled Contract Risk Management In Offshore Wind Construction, the event has been revamped to reflect the evolving challenges facing the industry. The event will now also cover risk in the pre-construction phase and will offer you clear, defined strategies to mitigate, not just allocate, risk throughout the project lifetime from pre-consent to decommissioning.
The forum will feature crucial topics such as:
- How can you overcome uncertainties associated to CfD?
- Minimising the risk involved with new technology
- What can we learn from the Oil and Gas industry to avoid the same mistakes?
- Learn about the latest mitigation measures to apply in the pre-consent and pre-construction phase
- Manipulating financial systems to eliminate redundancies and improve profitability
