Supporting the fast-growing offshore wind market
With rising demand for wind power, there is an increased need for WTIVs that can serve this growing segment efficiently and sustainably. In 2020, offshore wind generation grew by almost 30 percent, with capacity additions of 6 GW1. In its ‘Net Zero by 2050’ roadmap, the International Energy Agency fore-casts 310 GW in wind energy sources, of which 80 GW offshore, would need to be added to the global energy mix each year for the world to achieve carbon neutrality by mid-century.
