Offshore Wind

For the 11th year in a row, Norwegian Energy Partners will be bringing international and Norwegian developers and suppliers together to discuss the status and future of offshore wind.


The industry is booming. Global growth expectations are high and accelerating for offshore wind in general and for floating wind in particular.


At the conference we will put emphasis on the task ahead and seek to answer the questions:

  • What are the expectations and what are the market drivers? Will growth sustain?

  • How will the industry fare under the added weight of the oil majors?

  • How will the industry be able to scale to meet growth expectations?

  • What’s in it for Norway and the Norwegian offshore industry?

Join us to meet international peers and the Norwegian offshore engineering and maritime expertise.
