This session will look at on ongoing and planned projects in floating offshore wind, from the perspective of project developers, technology developers and suppliers. Delegates will get a better understanding of the status of ongoing and planned projects, the market potential and cost reductions.
Delegates will be able to:
- explain the current market situation and project status for floating wind;
- identify key differences between a floating wind project compared with a bottom-fixed one; and
- understand the future market potential of floating wind.
