Showcasing the Opportunities, Innovators, and Initiatives within the Offshore Floating Wind Sector in the Celtic Sea
Floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea will represent the single biggest investment opportunity in Wales for decades. It’s no longer a maybe, it’s a reality.
Over the last few months, I have spoken to and interviewed over 50
professionals, all with a direct and indirect stake in the Celtic Sea vision and its clear ambition is building.
Components of the supply chain are already falling into place and many have secured investment, Ledwood and Marine Powered Solutions are just two examples of ambitious Welsh firms primed for growth. The opportunity for many others is there, they just don’t know it yet.
