Professionals from the industry discussed floating wind during the panel session ‘Focus on Floating Wind’. With record floating wind capacity already awarded or soon to be procured across Europe, and new targets being set worldwide, the conference session looks at both the industry’s trajectory toward 2030 and 2050, and the supply chain which is crucial for realising the projects.
Joining from the two countries where floating wind is taking off big style, Norway and the UK, Arvid Nesse, Manager at Norwegian Offshore Wind Cluster and Managing Director at Marine Energy Test Centre (METCentre), and Sharanya Kumaramurthy, Senior Energy Analyst at the UK’s Energy Industries Council (EIC), will have plenty to share on floating wind, from market insights to supply chain capabilities.
From the supply chain, Barend Jenje, Commercial Director Floating Wind at GustoMSC, and Joop Roodenburg, President of Huisman, will bring their expertise in floating wind technology, heavy lifting and installation solutions, and much more. Paul de Leeuw, Director RGU Energy Transition Institute, is the moderator of the session.
