Opportunities & Challenges – vessels supporting offshore wind industry
With climate change at the top of the global political agenda, governments around the world are looking for ways to decarbonize their energy supply and cut emissions. The offshore wind industry has become a key factor in the energy transition. Offshore wind turbines continue to grow steadily, although Europe will remain the center of gravity, other countries including China, Taiwan and the United States are increasing investment in large-scale offshore wind farms. To continue developing this sector, offshore wind farms are moving into deeper waters and Vessels for the Wind Turbine Installation, Commissioning Service Operation and Crew Transfer plays a key role throughout project lifecycle.
