UK is at the top of the offshore wind league with 487 turbines installed (1534 MW of capacity); a further 2 GW in construction; and 42.1GW tabled for future development as part of the Round 3 programme.
With this huge pipeline, attention is turning to the supply chain opportunities in all sectors from offshore wind turbines to ports to shipping...and more. In addition, ongoing operation and maintenance of these installations is crucial to ensure the blades keep turning as they move further offshore and into deeper water.
The supplement will include the following topics:
- Where oil and gas meets the offshore industry – areas of potential collaboration;
- Turbines – innovation and developments targeted at the offshore environment;
- Are UK ports ready for Round 3? (part 2 of a 2 part article - part 1 will be published in the Mar/Apr issue);
- How can met masts help with offshore wind?
- Careers in offshore wind;
As well as being distributed to our print and digital circulation of around 40,000, the special supplement will have special distribution at All Energy 2012, and RenewableUK Global Offshore Wind 2012.
