West Coast’s Floating OSW Port & Vessel Summit
Oceantic Network, a leading organization working to advance offshore wind and other ocean renewable industries and their supply chains, will host a Floating OSW Port & Vessel Summit on February 21-22 in Sacramento, California to help prepare the West Coast supply chain for floating offshore wind.
Hosted in partnership with the California Association of Port Authorities (CAPA), the Summit will convene key decision makers and innovators to set goals, identify challenges, and propose pathways to success for building critical port infrastructure and supporting the sector’s vessel demands.
The success of America's floating wind industry will be dependent on its ability to establish robust port infrastructure and deploy the many specialized vessels needed to construct and maintain a floating wind farm. As the pipeline of projects continues to grow, the industry must come together to determine the logistics of affordably and efficiently receiving, transporting, holding, and installing turbine components. The Summit, sponsored by Bardex, the Northern California Carpenters Union, the Port of Long Beach, and General Dynamics NASSCO, will facilitate these discussions to ensure an efficient rollout of floating offshore wind technology.
