North Sea Offshore Wind

North Sea Offshore Wind (NSOW) is returning to the UK and will take place in and around The Humber Estuary which is poised to become the UK’s main offshore wind hub. Being close to the UK’s three largest wind farms and home to the UK’s largest port site developments, the Humber is well positioned as the operations and maintenance base for the North Sea offshore industry.

 The aim of NSOW2014 is to bring together individuals and organisations with an interest in offshore wind from across the North Sea region in order to network and develop partnerships:

  •  Commercial opportunities: Identify and team up with potential new partners
  • Market Intelligence: Update your knowledge on new opportunities
  • Networking: Request meetings with specific organisations
  • Hands-on experience: See for yourself the developments in the Humber region
