Event description

Description

This event will share insights from emerging technologies and lessons learned from mature industries to stimulate the audience to identify potential solutions which could support the evolution of the offshore wind industry. By embracing cross-sector working and processes, this is a real opportunity to shape the future of foundations in offshore wind.

Foundations for offshore wind turbines present developers with many challenges. These require innovative approaches and technical expertise from companies with different backgrounds to identify solutions.

This event will examine a number of these challenges by showcasing the opportunities available to address them and how you or your company can be involved.

Come along to hear more about these specific challenges and to meet the organisations who are seeking to support your solutions.

This event will cover the following topics:

• Corrosion
• Inspection and access
• Mass production of jackets
• Cost effective foundations in deeper water
• Noise reduction in installation of monopiles
• Installation of larger monopiles and jackets

Presentations and discussions will be with industry experts, The Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator and ORE Catapult & Energy Technology Partnership.
