Westwood’s Global Offshore Wind Market Report provides a comprehensive review and outlook of global and regional offshore wind spend and installation activity on a quarterly basis. The report covers the latest news on policy mechanisms, auctions and licensing rounds, capacity targets, recent EPC/EPCI contract highlights, turbine OEM performance and a five-year regional outlook for key equipment (turbine, turbine foundations, offshore stations and cables).
Delivered as part of a subscription to WindLogix, the report is intentionally structured to provide all readers, ranging from executives to business development teams, with an in-depth roundup of key events and contracting activity that has shaped the quarter. Providing further insight into upcoming project FIDs, potential contract awards and commercial trends, enables improved opportunity scouting and forward planning.
