|Current offshore wind trends are driving larger turbines further offshore. These projects need innovative cables solutions, precise maritime installation, efficient long-distance transmission and reliable maintenance and repair services.
The UK has a wealth of expertise and a track record in bringing down the costs. France has a host of excellent local companies and a strong desire to build an offshore wind industry. The aim of this session is to gather the experts in a concrete, solution based, discussion.
14.00 – Doors open, tea & coffee
14.30 – Scene setting presentations from the French grid operator RTE and developers
16.00 – All to break-out into workshops to discuss solutions in three simultaneous sessions:
· Development (design and fabrication)
· Installation (from surveys to grid/sub-station termination)
· Maintenance (including repair and storage)
17.00 – Networking drink until 19.00
RSVP before the 13th February 2018
