We invite you to a seminar to discuss the challenges and opportunities that global offshore wind represents. Furthermore, to explore how the Norwegian supply industry can take a pole position in developing unique solutions to meet todays and tomorrows requirements within offshore wind, for floating, as well as fixed installations.

More than 15 000 offshore wind turbines are expected to be installed globally over the next ten years and they require subsea operations related to pre-installation preparations, installation, inspection and maintenance through the wind turbine lifetime; 25 years plus.

It is up to the Norwegian subsea supplier industry to decide if they should be the game changer or just a follower. The pure size of the market and the opportunity to drive down cost will generate new solutions. The question is, shall the Norwegian industry lead the way? You have the answers.
