Floating Offshore Wind

Floating Offshore Wind
12 - 13 October 2022, Aberdeen


The winds of changes are picking up

The potential of floating offshore wind to support the global journey to net zero is fast being realised. The industry is currently tasked with accelerating growth within the sector and seizing new opportunities to expand ideas and bring projects to life. Obstacles still lay ahead, but with close collaboration and continued innovation, we can meet the targeted 5GW of floating offshore wind capacity by 2030. To be part of the important conversations and to gain valuable market insights, don’t miss Floating Offshore Wind (FOW) Conference & Exhibition, brought to you by RenewableUK and Scottish Renewables!

To be held on 12-13 October 2022 at P&J Live in Aberdeen, FOW will deliver a comprehensive programme exploring all areas of the industry. From the Ministerial address to sessions presented by leading experts across the sector, the spotlight will be on technical challenges and solutions, from investment and development of ports to innovative substructure design and manufacturing, mooring systems and O&M solutions.


A comprehensive programme

Invaluable for many across the sector, there will be an update on Scotwind projects and related supply chain commitments, with details shared regarding direct investment and predicted timelines. For even greater perspective, there will be a global overview and discussion surrounding how the UK might maintain its lead in the rapidly growing market worldwide. In a similar vein, there will be interesting insights into the Crown Estate Celtic Sea Leasing Round, including the latest forecasts and opportunities for the supply chain. Experts will share the holistic network design for the Celtic Sea project, as well as the Welsh government’s local ownership and community benefit policy.
