My motivation being part of the WINDFORCE 2020
I would like to share main knowledge of the offshore wind business and offshore wind industry. From Cuxhaven’s point of view, I would like to show how a harbor facility has to look like and how to structure an efficient base harbor to receive the best output for an offshore wind project. I also like to extend my network and the character of my network. Especially in growing markets focused on renewable energy.
