Virtual offshore wind mission China

9 May - 12 May

Are you active in the offshore wind business and want to know more about the opportunities and possibilities in the country with the largest offshore wind capacity in the world? Consider joining the digital offshore wind mission to China! 

Why participate?

China is investing heavily in the gy transition. At provincial level, plans are being made to expand the entire coastline with extra offshore wind capacity. For example, the local governments in Jiangsu and Guangdong aim to have more than 30GW of capacity operational by 2030. In addition, the northern provinces of Shandong and Liaoning are also developing plans for offshore wind deployment.  

  • Gain insight into the opportunities for Dutch companies in the Chinese offshore wind market; 
  • Expand your network with relevant parties for collaboration and business;
  • Discover your opportunities to contribute to and benefit from this fast-growing industry in China.

Opportunities for Dutch companies 

Investing in high-tech is becoming more and more interesting for Chinese developers. From this year onwards, no national subsidies will be provided anymore to build offshore wind farms. Without national subsidies, it is difficult for developers and investors to establish a robust business case based on the current APEX and OPEX estimations. In the new subsidy-free era, projects will have to be developed more efficiently, and with higher quality. As a result, the demand for innovative solutions is expected to increase in the coming years.  

The main opportunities in the offshore wind sector in China are: 

  • Increasing efficiency and improving quality in the installation of offshore wind farms; 
  • Increasing efficiency in operations & maintenance (O&M); 
  • Alternative foundation techniques, such as suction pile foundations, gravity-based foundations and floating wind; 
  • Knowledge and technology to the OEM wind turbine manufacturers in China.  

Program

This mission will take place virtually. Dutch companies with representation in China can physically participate in some program components that will be organized on the second day of the program.  

The program consists of two half days. The first part of the day is a joint kick-off (with the two other tracks: circular economy and fresh logistics) under the leadership of Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Liesje Schreinemacher.  

The second half of the day focuses on introducing the Chinese and Dutch offshore wind players. In an open session, Dutch and Chinese participants can take the stage to introduce themselves. Focus will be on the opportunities and challenges in the sector, both in China and the Netherlands. After the plenary session, there is opportunity for business-to-business (B2B) matchmaking.  

More information and registration

Participation is only open to Dutch (affiliated) companies. Participation fee will be €250,00 per person.
