WORKSHOP A

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Does floating foundations hold the future of offshore wind?

Dirk Pulles - Manager Renewables, KCI Engineers
It is undeniable that floating foundations are a part of the offshore wind landscape. Could it be the transition we are looking for to decrease wind offshore LCoE? This open discussion will offer a chance to discuss opportunities, barriers, and innovations: current concepts to follow up, available mooring technologies, and impact on environment, installation and logistics…
