Operations and Maintenance in the Offshore Renewables Sector

Watch on demand

1h 3m

Renewable energy is gaining traction at a global level, particularly offshore renewable energy as a growing sector aiming to support climate targets. As such there is a need to support more, and competitive projects that can allow development and expansion of this sector and support net-zero ambitions. But there are hurdles to growth, including slow build-up of networking and capacity in developing countries, a lack of government policies to support infrastructure and build quality, and limited financing for R&D to improve the reliability of automation, zero failure design and standardisation.

The IMarEST and Fugro surveyed nearly 400 individuals in the sector and share their insight and opinions as well as discuss what they mean for the industry.
