The exponential growth in the offshore wind space means that it is more important than ever to build strategies and formulate plans based on quality data and facts. Our consultants have a deep understanding of this space, and experience compiling and interpreting the most recent data to support customers in leveraging the growth. We have worked with numerous offshore supply companies on how they could leverage their current competencies to compete in the offshore wind space. 

  • Our consulting work builds on a strong understanding of the current activity and the pipeline of projects over the years to come. Furthermore, as technology is developing rapidly and pushing costs lower, we maintain a close relationship with market participants to understand the outlook.  
  • The offshore wind space is populated by specialists as well as companies that have built their business on strong capabilities in other sectors. We have over the years worked with numerous companies to support them in re-applying their capabilities in the offshore wind sector.  
  • In addition, given the utility scale opportunities typically offered through government license auctions, offshore wind has the potential to support continued electrification and emissions reductions in the oil and gas industry. We provide developers and suppliers with cost-benefit analyses, enabling them to understand the commercial potential of offshore wind in the oil and gas sector.
