When the world’s largest offshore wind conference and exhibition, OFFSHORE WIND ENERGY 2017, opens its doors in London from 6 to 8 June, ESVAGT will be there with its own stand for the first time – stand number N-J40.

The OFFSHORE WIND ENERGY 2017 exhibition showcases the latest innovative solutions and technological innovations in the offshore wind industry, making it a natural place for ESVAGT to be, says Søren Karas, Chief Commercial Officer for ESVAGT:

“As an important partner and part of the ecosystem in the offshore wind sector, we need to be at an exhibition that brings together the many players in the industry. We will meet existing and potential customers, partners and competitors, and reinforce ESVAGT’s long term ambitions in offshore renewable energy,” says Søren Karas.

Among other things, ESVAGT will demonstrate its SOV concept and show how its innovative solutions have helped to shape and change the industry, something that they intend to continue to do:

We would like to show how we, as an active partner and in dialogue, can help to develop new concepts. Not only do we need to be in the market and top of mind for those looking for a vessel – we need to be top of mind for those looking for a solution. Dialogue and combined development are high on the agenda in the industry and ESVAGT has a strong position as innovative and respected sparring partner,” says Søren Karas.
