You are invited to the 1st Nor-Shipping Offshore Wind Conference.

Through an exciting programme and panel discussions: Offshore wind developers, OEMs, and maritime industry experts will offer you their views on how to fulfill ambitious project pipeline and construction targets.

We will dive into both installation and O&M and ask major industrial panel participants; How do we meet vessel requirements, both technologically and in a timely fashion? To highlight the innovation involved, we will look both at new technologies and solutions, digitalization and not least sustainability in operations.

This is the first Nor-Shipping Offshore Wind conference and Nor-shipping, NORWEP, Clarksons, Maritime CleanTech and GCE Ocean Technology stand behind this initiative.
