Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (16-18 November)

Aanvangsdatum: 16-Nov-2021
Capaciteit: (0% geboekt)


With more than 3,500 km of coastline, France has the second largest offshore wind potential in Europe. Ten years after the French government announced its ambition to develop an offshore wind industry, 4 (2GW) of the 7 awarded bottom-fixed wind projects (3,5GW) received the final approval to be built over a three-year period (2019-2022), and there are also four demonstration floating wind projects currently under development.

France has confirmed plans to boost its capacity base and become a world leader in floating offshore wind under its multi-year energy plan (PPE), first offering a 250MW site off south Brittany in 2021, and then t
wo 250MW projects in the Meditteranean Sea in 2022. From 2024, France plans to award 1GW of offshore wind projects extensions per year, fixed-bottom or floating, to leverage existing project's grid connections.

All recent developments pave the way for the more rapid evoluation and take-up of a core, strategic segment of renewable offshore energy in France and give many opportunities for the Dutch offshore wind sector.

Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWT)
The FOWT is the world's largest event dedicated to floating offshore wind and will be held from November 16 -18, 2021 in St. Malo, France. The objective of the FOWT is to further the advancement of floating wind and to accelerate its implementation into the global renewable energy mix. This event is meant to promote constructive discussions between all actors and stakeholders of this emerging industry. 

Holland Home of Wind Energy (HHWE), together with the Netherlands Business Support Office (NBSO) in Nantes and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Paris, will organize a pop-up NLbooth for all Dutch participants to showcase their logo and corporate movie/presentation

A minimum number of 10 participants, who will be physically present during the event, is required to proceed with the NLbooth.
