Offshore wind: creating value and employment for Europe

February 19 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

The Green Deal presented by the European Commission in December includes the creation of an EU strategy on offshore wind in 2020. Europe is the world’s leading region in the production of energy from offshore wind. As energy demand in Europe increases, the offshore wind sector will continue to grow and increase its contribution to value creation and jobs. The shipping sector is a significant part of the supply chain enabling the installation and maintenance of offshore windfarms.

Join us to learn about the opportunities that exist in the offshore wind sector for shipowners as well as for Europe.
