The Celtic Sea Alliance are hosting the Floating Wind in the Celtic Sea: Future Supply Chain Opportunities event on Thursday 30th January,  hear experts discuss the exciting world of floating offshore wind!

Floating wind has made significant advances in recent years and is set to become a major contributor to global offshore wind capacity over the coming decades. Today, the UK leads the world in deployment of floating wind and has the opportunity to develop a sustainable industry supporting large-scale employment, exports and GVA. Floating wind is an important counterpart to fixed offshore wind and will make an increasingly important contribution to realising the full potential of the sector. Floating wind sites in the South west and Scotland will support the UK offshore wind supply chain, with 57% UK content expected by 2031 and 65% by 2050.

Reasons to attend and find out more on:

• Over 100GW of floating wind has been ID in the Celtic Sea;

• This will provide significant supply chain opportunities;

• The Celtic Sea Alliance was launched by Minister for Energy, Environment and Rural Affairs in October, 2019

• A pipeline of projects to develop 1GW of Floating Wind;

• The ORE Catapult recently launched the UK Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence;

• Pembroke Dock Marine – a £60M pound project that will support Floating Offshore Wind in the region.
