Carbon Trust

Discover the latest developments in technologies and design for offshore wind foundations

Europe's first intense two-day event dedicated to the design of offshore wind structures - a high-level, interactive experience to inform your offshore wind projects as the industry continues to evolve

Key features at Offshore Wind Structures 2015

  • Focus on foundations: Case studies and lessons learnt: (X)XL monopiles, jackets, twisted jackets, suction buckets, gravity base, hydbrid and floating foundations

  • Understand the evolving industry: Discover the design implications of 6MW+ turbines, seabed conditions, and project logistics, and how the industry is moving forwards

  • Learn from experienced speakers: Get real value from the technical and commercial expertise of the speakers, including developers such as EDF, consultancies such as DNV GL, non-profit bodies such as The Carbon Trust, and foundation designers such as Ramboll and Seatower

  • Impressive attendees: Intimate networking with the high-calibre attendees looking to drive the industry forward

Wind Energy Update features & testimonials


This conference was a great opportunity to meet different actors in the offshore wind industry to share knowledge and best practices. It gave me the opportunity for networking with other professionals as well. The conference as a whole was quite excellent



A good opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues. Numerous interesting presentations & case studies



Good especially because it is much more about the problems and less commercial
